Video Transcript

I'm going to tell you in this video series about beginning to play the flamenco guitar. In this segment I will tell you a little bit about what a flamenco guitar is. A flamenco guitar is similar to a classical guitar but it is generally of lighter construction, lighter weight and it has lower action in other words the strings are closer to the finger board making the left hand techniques a little easier. A flamenco guitar has nylon strings the 3 treble strings obviously nylon and the 3 bass strings have nylon film in them wound with metal. And these strings are played with the finger nails in the right hand. In the next segment I will talk about how to hold the flamenco guitar correctly.
