Watch the Rasgueado Technique 4 online guitar lesson by Tierra Negra from New World Flamenco

This strum begins with an upstroke with the thumbnail (P), followed by a downstroke with the ring finger (A). That is followed, in turn, by a downstroke with the thumb. As we speed this up, it starts to sound very complex, but it is actually pretty simple to play.

Note that I’m not strumming across all six strings. I begin the upstroke with (P) around the high B string, not the high E. My (A) downstroke only touches a few middle strings. Keeping my movements small allows me to really build up the speed of the strum.

Let’s try it with E and open F chord shapes and a capo on the 2nd fret. Notice how I’m simply sliding most of the F chord shape down a half fret to play the E chord. This allows me to move between the chords more fluidly and rapidly.
