How to Do Arpeggios and Golpes for Rumba (Flamenco Guitar Lesson) | Two Lively Faletas
In this lesson for the flamenco guitar, I will show you how to play two very energetic falsetas for the compás of rumba! I will warn you, it’s going to be a gople frenzy!
…What does that mean? Well, in the flamenco guitar style, there is a technique called “golpe,” where the player taps on the golpeador (tapping plate), which is affixed to the face of the guitar body in order to protect the wood finish.
One of the things you will learn in this lesson is how to do a golpe with you anular (ring) finger and the medio (middle) finger.
Each one of those types of golpe is executed in different eras of the golpeador. Aside from glolpes, there is much more that you will learn in this flamenco guitar tutorial. So grab your guitar, take notes, and let’s start playing!
