Watch the Falseta 1 online guitar lesson by John Fillmore from Soleares Flamenco Guidebook

What are falsetas? Well, as I mentioned before, when accompanying singers, it is common practice to play short compositions in-between the verses (letras) of the singer. This gives the singer time to rest and hopefully (for us) to inspire him to even greater singing! This falseta, played with the thumb and index finger, is an old traditional falseta.
