Basic Flamenco Right Hand Techniques "Rasgueos"


Like a lot of guitar players I learned about Paco de Lucia through the famous trio he had with John Mclaughlin and Al di Meola. Which guitar player doesn't have "saturdaynight in San Francisco" somewhere.  I have several albums by Paco and would sing along {phonetically and with the doors closed) ' solo quiero caminar'. 

Flamenco studies are very good for every player, especially for the right hand.
I've transcribed the techniques demonstrated here in this video. Again it shows the enormous importance of Paco to modern flamenco playing.
