How to Play "Danza Mora" (Lesson #1) for the Flamenco Guitar

 

Danza Mora (moorish dance) is an arabesque-themed folk song for the flamenco guitar. In this first lesson of the Danza Mora we will tune our guitars to dropped D tuning.

You will hear an interesting snare drum effect produced by the sixth and fifth strings being struck while being coiled together. Watch the video very closely to see exactly how this effect is done.

The second portion of this opening section involves exclusive use of the thumb (pulgar) for all the notes, including the natural harmonics at the end. Enjoy!
