Watch the Spanish Fandango online guitar lesson by Tommy Emmanuel from Fingerstyle Breakthroughs

In this segment Tommy shows you how to play the song "Spanish Fandango".

This song is normally in a 3/4 or 6/8 time, with most people playing it in an open G tuning. But, in this style, it works in the key of C and in 2/4 time. There's no real "traps" in this tune, just a couple of things to look out for that will be highlighted in the lesson. Again, utilize your thumb to play the bass notes so your hand has more freedom to move around - it's your choice, but a great tool to pick up!

Make sure that the melody is sustaining. Keep your hands locked in position while playing the bass part so the higher notes continue to ring out.
