Watch the Rasgueado Technique 3 online guitar lesson by Tierra Negra from New World Flamenco

This Rasgueado creates a cascading "waterfall" effect that works beautifully for chord fills between melody notes, for an introduction or to end a song.
The strum combines both free and rest strokes. The (I) and (M) fingers play free strokes and the (A) finger plays a series of rest strokes, making its way from the high E string all the way to the low E.

As you’ll see in the lesson, we can also add bass notes to this strum with the thumb. Relaxing your wrist and allowing it to move and rotate freely is key for this technique.
