Watch the Right-Hand Roll online guitar lesson by Rich Maloof from 50 Acoustic Guitar Licks You MUST Know
Jose Feliciano could infuse an acoustic part with more rhythm than a line of conga players. We're emulating here on steel-string what Jose would sooner play on a nylon but not without some pretty unique results. Check this starter lesson on the Flamenco technique known as rasgueado, where the strum rolls off successive right-hand fingers beginning with the pinky. All the work, really, is in the right hand, which can also slap the strings and tap the face of the guitar to make like a one-man band.
