Watch the Rumba Strum Pattern 5 online guitar lesson by Tierra Negra from New World Flamenco

Nuevo flamenco incorporates creative new techniques into traditional flamenco guitar, like my own percussive technique I demonstrate here, which mimics the sound of a bongo player.

You will need a pickguard on your guitar body to protect it from all the tapping. If you don’t have one, temporary pickguards are available online or at music stores, and are easy to install and remove.

Hit the chart button on the player for the strumming pattern diagram.
