How to Compose Your Own Rumba

Have you ever wondered how guitarists make simple melodies come alive with chords? Have you ever wanted to take a simple song-line and be able to accompany it with chords?

Well, in this flamenco guitar lesson, I’m very excited to show you how to compose your own rumba! First, we’ll start out with a simple melody line. Next, we’ll listen closely to the melody to figure out which chords we’ll need to use. Lastly, I’ll show you how to add the correct rhythm and chords along with the melody so that you can accompany yourself so well that it will sound like two guitars are playing!

So grab your guitar, a pen and paper, and follow along carefully. While you’re at it, get a friend to join along with you during this lesson so that you can help and encourage each other on the journey! Let’s go! ¡Vamonos!
