Use this Trick to Turn Your Flamenco Guitar into a Cajón!

You’ve done it! You’ve now reached the final part of this lively rumba piece for the flamenco guitar. Bravo! Now we will take our basic rumba strumming pattern using a slap on the three-beat while moving some of the other beats around between the neck and the saddle.

On the one-beat, go ahead and thump your middle finger (m) and your ring finger (a) along the saddle for a kick-drum effect. Next, while strumming the beats in between, move your right hand over frets 15 and 18 for a slap. Increase your speed and dynamic intensity as you approach the picado section. Finally, finish out the piece with an olé!

As always, remember to take it slow, paying close attention to what you are doing, which means you should be listening to what you are playing. Enjoy!
