Watch the Rasgueado Technique 5 online guitar lesson by Tierra Negra from New World Flamenco

For this Rasgueado strum we will use the thumb plus the middle (M) and ring (A) fingers together. Here’s the pattern: Thumb up, (MA) down, thumb down, thumb up.

This Rasgueado is often used at the end of a chord progression, and is played strongly, with a real flourish of the right hand. I will demonstrate this by adding it to Rumba Pattern 1.
