In this Homespun video series you’ll learn to sound like a flamenco guitarist instantly! Aaron Gilmartin has made his introduction to this guitar style so easy that even someone with just a minimal amount of guitar experience can start playing this exciting and passionate music.
To get you going, Aaron has chosen Tango Flamenco, one of the great traditional Latin dance forms transformed by flamenco. It's based on a simple, instantly recognizable four-chord progression and a driving rhythmic pulse. Popular groups such as the Gipsy Kings have made this sound famous in recent years.
The rhythm compass, with its familiar percussive effect, is key to this style. Aaron teaches you the basic right hand strums (rasgueados) and picking (picados) that conjure up the sounds of Spain. Aiming this video series at true beginners, Aaron takes each step of his lesson at a very slow and deliberate pace.
