Watch the Rest Stroke online guitar lesson by Muriel Anderson from 50 Right-Hand Techniques You Must Know

The rest stroke is used extensively in flamenco music and also to bring the melody out on classical guitar. Because the rest stroke gives more power, if you are using a steel string guitar with low action you may have to lighten up the stroke so that that strings don't buzz against the frets.

The example I play is the beginning of my composition "Arioso" which is available in its entirety on the sheet music page of my website, and it is also taught in detail in my TrueFire DVD "Innovations."
