Watch the Golpe Technique 1 online guitar lesson by Tierra Negra from New World Flamenco

Golpe means "to strike" in Spanish. In flamenco, golpe is the technique of tapping with the fingers on the body of the guitar, which is also called the soundboard.

In this lesson, you’ll tap on the soundboard with the ring finger (A). Your right-hand thumb (P) is playing rest-strokes on a rotating basis.
