Well Flamenco is very rhythmic and the Rasgueado technique is very important some grasp of fingerpicking is very important too and last but not least pedal points are also very important.

I like comparing Flamenco to Death Metal and Thrash(im being serious) because the fast runs are very similar in style.

That being said there are difficult pieces like Malaguena but you should start out with some slow Gypsy King strumming like Love and Liberte or Triste Pena.

For flamenco I'd recomend listening to music by Andrew Robinson, a fantastic flamenco guitarist!

Also, listen to Rodrigo Y Gabriella, they're very good also.

I'd advise getting a Spanish flavour to your playing and then decide what Flamenco path you want to go. Flamenco can be quite rigid in methods or a looser concept (what you'll probably want)

What helps is to stick to chords you can easily change....Am to G to F to E, etc. This way you can concentrate a 100% on your right hand. Learning the E Phrygian mode in the first couple positions, and these simple chord changes will give you an instant Spanish flavour. any improvised combination will sound like Spanish songs you've heard.

Then you can start to introduce a few flamenco strums and so on. It's all about rhythm and strumming at first will be best to get a flow before inserting individual notes (as leaugue advises above).

E-1-3-1-0---------------------
B-2-3-1-0---------------------
G-2-4-2-1---------------------
D-0-5-3-2---------------------
A---5-3-2---------------------
E-----------------------------


i may have writing one of these wrong cause i didnt have a guitar handy but i think this is a common chord progression for flamenco

use E phrygian dominant which is mode 5 of A harmonic minor

EDIT: it seems raptor claws beat me to it lol

I hear you must have long nails. Can you play Flamenco on an electric?

Well, it's physically possible... but it won't justify the sound at all. Flamenco was and still is 'one' with the acoustic.

Al di Meola & Paco de Lucia do Flamenco, but they're very versitile too.

Even if you used an acoustic emulator?
