Transcripts

1. Promo video: Hello guitarist us. My name is Dina and I'm the author of the guitar Teaching Books, Spanish guitar strumming techniques. It's contains 19 guitar lessons and cars with a DVD. Would you like to play like this or like this? Or even like this? You can learn any of these techniques or many, many others. But today, I would like to share with you one quick lesson on how to play a basic Roomba technique. And after this lesson, you will learn something like this. So the technique, at first, you make a hit on the guitar and you go up with all of your fingers. You go down all of your fingers where you turn your hand and you go up the top. So heat than heat up, turn the heat up. Once you are comfortable movements, you can start practicing. Now the question is, how can you go fast with this technique? There are few things that you need to do to be able to speed up the this one, and you need to follow this advices. Otherwise it will be very difficult to go fast. The first one is, don't use your hands when you make the movement, but only use index finger. So it will be hit indexing it up. Index finger done by you turn and tongue up. So heat, index up, index down, dum bop. The reason why you use only one finger, because then you reduce the movements, so then it will enable you to go a little bit faster. The second theme that I can give you, this one, you need to be very close with the detector. So if you are far away from the guitar or you make two big movements, then you won't be able to go fast. So that's why if you see mine, It's like not so much effort than I do or these movements. And then very close to the Kitab. The next tip that I would like to share with you is the turn. You need to add the term, otherwise you won't be able to go fast. A lot of people make this mistake that they tried to strum from the arm, but you need to strum from the briefs in this case, because if you use your arms so much, then you won't be able to go fast. So how do you do that one, your arm has to be in a stable position and you only move your policed, which means you do heat, go up by you only use your index finger and don't turn your arm. And you go turn and then you don't use the arms so much just your wrist to do with the turn and back. As you can see, I'm still moving a little bit my arm, but all the movements are coming from the wrist. And finally, the last tip that I would like to share with you is using the metronome. The metronome is an amazing way to speed up your playing because it's forcing you to keep up in the speed. You can set it to a higher level and then you try to keep up with the speed and at the same time you go faster. So how do you do this one? For example, they can set up the metronome to 100 bpm and we can make one movement on 100 bpm. So then when movement means that all the heats we'll be on the beeps of the metronome. So this will be one heat. Of course, you can start any speed that you want or feel comfortable. And after you can go faster, but don't go faster until you are confident with the speed. And now let's try to go faster. They're set up to 140 BPM. I hope you find this useful and it'll help you to master this technique in my book, you can find very similar lessons to this one. And also all the lessons will come with step-by-step explanations, slow motion movements, and lot of exercises containing the tabs. And I saw the cardiogram and traditional musical notation. So go ahead and look at it and hopefully it will make you practice like crazy. And thank you so much for watching this video and for the collaboration bits, strings by mail. 2. Little Intro: Before you start the course, I just want to say it would make me really happy if you could leave me a review. So I know how I have done with the course for you. Also, you'll see some assignments in the course if you decide to do them, I have a loop personally to each of the assignments and either give you a feedback. So I know how you have done. I hope you will enjoy this course and I'm really looking forward to see your reviews and assignments. 3. Basic Rumba Technique: The first technique that I'm going to show you is the basic Roomba technique. And after this lesson, you will learn something like this. Don't buy is played in 44 time. And probably this is the reason why it is so popular because audiences at easily able to relate to these familiar for, for the term. The sequence is as follows. Hit the oil of the fingers up with oil on the fingers down did all of the fingers when you turn your wrist and up the cure thump. So heat up, down, up, heat up, up, up, down, up. Now the question is, how can you make this faster? There are few steps that you need to do to make this faster. First step, only play with your index or middle finger instead of oil fingers. So the sequences hit and index finger up, index finger down, and dump up, or hit with a finger up, middle finger, down, come up. I actually prefer the index finger to use. Second step, turn the risk properly. So the sequences heat up, turn, turn back, heat up, turn, hit, pop, turn, turn. If you don't turn your wrist, then you won't be able to make this fast or have power to do this movement properly. Third step, be very close to the guitar. If you stay close to their guitar and don't make like so much movement, then you can go fast because if you make too many movements, it will take so much time to go back to the origin at position. So if you see when I'm playing fast and very close to the guitar. And then only turning my belief, four-step, try only one click movement and after stop. For example, do one round and hit Stop. This will help you later on to connect these movements together and you can do it continuously. 5-step practice with a metronome to be on time, for example. And I up the metronome to 80 BPM. And after IVF play, von movement on each of the bits hit up, up, up, up, up, up. You can set up the metronome to higher speed and you can follow this return until you reach the point that you can do one round on each of the beads. So now the metronome is still on 80 BPM Batavia play von drowned on each of the beads. You can influence the sand once you are comfortable with the technique. So if you hit closer to the sound toil, then you have a deeper sound. But if you hit closer to the bridge, then you have a higher sand. And combining these two hits, then you can have a varied Roomba of technique with a court. It sounds like this. If you would like to keep up in the speed with the Roomba, every movement has to come from the VST. And that's why it is very important to warm up the wrist before you start playing. This kind of bottom-up approach is very similar to a fitness workout. So you prepare the rest for the fast movements before you start playing. At first make in between 1020 counterclockwise circular movement. Your wrist. So 12345678910. And then you can do the same to the clockwise, 12345678910. And then you can turn it away from you for three seconds. And toolbars you for three seconds and away from you three seconds and towards you for three seconds. And you can just repeat this kind of movement until you feel like that your wrist is ready to go. And you can also do the same movements with your other hand as well. The first exercise is changing in-between E-major and E Major seven because there is only one naught, which is the difference in between these two chords. So this is E Major and image or seven. So I set up the metronome to 120 BPM and Divya played the exercise. But please, if you don't feel so confident, starts with a slower speed. 4. Rumba Technique Variations: Before we go on to the Roomba variations and would like to introduce a new technique which is quote, go at Bay. This is a good pays a Spanish word and it means to strike. And it literally means to strike that your ring finger on the soundboard. It is best to have a little bit of near to get the proper sound, but not too much because it can easily break. Be careful with this technique. You should protect your guitar. If this technique is used a lot, the guitar can become damaged after a period of time. It can either result in who was forming in the boot of the guitars body. To avoid this problem, some people use a guitar protector called Wordpad, or this can be in board below and above the sound toil. To do this technique, the best is to start at first without the guitar. So this movement is very similar, like catching something which your tongue and your ring finger. But at the same time you need to turn your wrist. So it is more like this. To do this on the guitar at first, you need to place your tongue to the E-string, but do not push it down. Just place it there. You make a hit with your ring finger, and then you turn. So place, hit, return, place, hit, learn, until you can do this oil together. The first variation that we will learn is the most common Roomba. And after this lesson you will learn something like this. So the sequences, good, damned into index finger up to the top, heat up the day indexing down with the index finger, up Linda Tom, go up and down, up, up, down, up, down, top, hit, up. So it is steered in 44. But that is an accent on the go or pay, which means it is lusting twice as much as every other movement. So it could be like draw up, break up, hit up, down, up. You can transform this technique Topeka, Steve room, Bob. And the only difference lays on the left hand. So you are incorporating several meetings to the left hand and then it will sound like very Pepco CIF. It sounds something like this. It is exactly the same technique. Or a dome. Meetings are incorporated, which means you who had the cord touch the strings while the cord starts the strings. The next variation, vis-a-vis the von no trombone. And after this lesson, even learn something like this. So the sequences ego one node down with your thumb and you end up on the next string. And after you go down with all of your fingers up, with your thumb, heat and with your index finger up, up. It is a little bit softer survey to play Roomba, although it can someone very nice because you can play little melody is Richard Tom. And also a new technique was inside this Roomba, and it is called BullGuard. And bulgur means playing with your thumb and your tamp always ends up on the next string. 5. Pulgar: Although this book is mainly about thrumming techniques, this Flamenco guitar technic, nice to be introduced because it will be often used in the patterns describe later on, pool Garmin stumped in Spanish. And it involves playing a string and ending up on the thing below. It is a little bit different from the classical technique because they do not end up on the next string. The best is to practice pool guy with a metronome. For example, this is one BullGuard. Before we go on to the exercises, one more technique needs to be introduced. And this is or your dad or your dad or sounds like this. Are you there though is a technique that uses the index finger to support the Tom, meaning that the highest string is played with the index finger and every other string is played with bulgur. So for example, in a mine or we played every other string with the BullGuard and only the E-string plays in the index finger, soul or God, or a God, or a God indexing data. B. Thanks. Okay. Yeah. 6. Flamenco Triplet: The next technique I'm going to show you is the flamenco triplet or upper Nico. And after this lesson, you will learn something like this. The triplet consist of three nodes within a single beat and the sequences, at first, you go down the middle and ring finger only with your fingers and not fit your wrist. And after Tom and you turn your wrist and turn back into town. So it is done down. The Flamenco guitarist actually start the sequence with different movement. They always start with the op movement. So it's up, turn up. But I show you this way because you can and the heat later on. Mastering the triplet requires that every single movement be performed precisely as follows. By making the first movement, only the two fingers moves and the entire hand remains stable. They end up just below the strings and they are curved like this. The second movement, you use your finger or TM, and you turn your wrist. On the third movement, you turn your back. So fingers turn. Fingers turn, turn. So the question is, how can you make this Foster? First be very close to the guitar? If you make too big movements, you won't be able to get fast. So it is more like second, turn your wrist properly. If you don't turn your wrist properly, you won't be able to go fast. And Indian, it's supposed to be like a shaped leg movement. Only with your wrist. So make one quick triplet and stop. If you are able to make one quick triplet after awhile, you cannot connect them together. Fourth, practice with a metronome. I set up my metronome to 130 BPM and they make one movement on each of the beads. So it looks like this. If it is too fast for you, you can slow it down. And once you are confident you can go faster with the beads, the best way to practice the triplet is making oxygens. So for exemple industry movements, you can make at first an accent on the first movement all the time. So it is a strong kid and done. And after you make an accent on the second movement. And after you make an accent on the third movement, you can do a lot of rounds on this one up until you feel confident and you can go for the triplet itself. Started this exercise at a slower speed first like 100 bpm. But once you are comfortable with the written and the technique, you can go up higher, like either play this in 190 BPM. And once you are comfortable with the triplet has value can make oxygens. This means that you make a lot triplet on each of the bars and the first time and after every other triplets is a little bit lower volume. The other way to make oxygens on the triplets is combining them with eight notes. This means that you do Von Don and after one triplet, triplet on Dan von triplet to triplets. You can combine these triplets with the previously learned through him, but techniques. And it will sound really amazing. 7. Adding a Hit to the Flamenco Triplet and Variations: After building up the confidence in the flamenco triplet, you can start adding Keats. And after this lesson, you will learn something like this. So the sequences, you go down the middle and drink fingers, like in the triplet before. And you go down which your town Ben, turn like in the triplet before and turn back and heat. So w1, w1, up, hit, done, hit, done. Up here. I call this Gabriele technique because Gabriella quintet, or from the popular Mexican guitarist or Ojibwe Gabriella, using this technique a lot. The heat doesn't necessarily need to be after the first triplet, but you can do several triplets and do a hit. So you can do, for example, to triplet and do a hit. So it sounds something like this. And you can combine these two triplets hit with one triplet and the heat. You shouldn't start doing this technique before you can draw and that triplet. But once you are comfortable with the triplet, you can start doing this and you can even make the different hits on the guitar. So if you hit closer to the sound taught, it sounds a little bit deeper. And if you hit closer to the bridge, it sounds higher. So using this technique, doing the different hits on something like this. And with a chord, it sounds something like this. The next song will be the same chord progression or a door there. They'd be a triplet and tit and strumming up and hit. So the first exercise will be from the song tamoxifen, and you use double, triplet and heat. And after triplet hit, triplet hit on the courts, or attenuating in-between each other. You can make other variations to make this a little bit more interesting. For example, instead of triplets, you can use append down strumming and the heat. So after this lesson, you will learn something like this. So the technique is your hand is in an open fist position and you go down the oil of your like fingernails. And after you go up the cure Tom fingernail. So it is done up, down, up, down, up, down, up heat. In the end only or wrist is moving. And that's why you can go fast, because you should be able to royal your reached in the end. To make oxygens on this one, you can just make von Dan movement and after done up and hit. So it's done, not hit, done up here. Then you must turn all of these techniques. You can practice and combine everything together. You can use a lot of different chord progression. But now I will show you an example on a mine or G major, F major major, and either play the different techniques on each of the court. 8. Replacing the Hits with Golpes: First-hand percussive playing can be produced other ways than just making kids with their hands. Replacing the heat's would go up based on the different feeling for the play. So after this lesson, you will learn something like this. To do displaying your hand is in an open fist position and you go down it all off your fingers an octave in the term. So it is done up, down, up. Every movement is coming from the wrist. So you only move your wrist when you do this movement and after awhile, you can speed it up. The next step is incorporating oxygens so you can make accent that you go down strongly and after Dan, Dan, Dan up. So you create triplets this way and fast. It sounds something like this. And the next step is replacing the oxygens with Gabe's. So good pain is a hit the cure RNC thing. And you catch when the Tom why you turn your hand. So and then the movement feel be good, pay down or what? Not. And with a chord, it sounds something like this. Step four is building up different oxygens using this kind of technique. For example, you can be adopted for four with this one. And then it will be like go up, down, up, down, up, down, up, down, up, down, up. So it sounds something like this. You can be adopt other type of written says where for example, some bark and, or Turkish written. And then it could be an op code does not go up and down than up, or go up and down, up, go up and down and up, and not go up and down on that up. So the first few weeks and the second via B. And of course it can be adopt any other returns that you want to, only your imagination is the limit to use this technique. Okay? Yes. Okay. 9. Rasgueado: Jazz piano is a Flamenco strumming technique, and it is executed on a way that your tongue is placed on the low E string. And you use one or more fingers from the base of the tongue and you go down on the strings. So the vans Turbo Kresge ad or looks like this, or like this. The strings are struck with the fingernails and it gives a much stronger sand. Then the other techniques, because we use the nail to make the hits. So would the tongue is placed on the low E string but do not push it down. Just place it there and your index finger is in the bottom of the tub. And you hit the strings with your fingernail and then you end up, you are still curved and do just below the strings like this. And then you do the movement. You use the treble strings to go up and you go back to the bottom of the tub. When you hit the first one, then you tried to hit the bass notes. So it has a strong sound. Some people do not flick properly, so it's advisable for them to use a coin or any other literature things and practice the flicking without a guitar. One stroke Krazy ad or can be combined with the heat using the ring finger. And this technique is also called good pay. So what you are doing, you are dumped placed on the E string. Your index finger is the bottom of the tub and then you make the heat and go down at the same time that your index finger. So it is like this. And the accord, it looks like this. It can be a bit unnatural movement at first because your index finger and your ring finger is moving towards different directions. So without the guitar, it is a bit like this. For men toward any record of your choice to make it easier for us. Either just hoisted an E major chord. C is this one. And setup the metronome to 100 bpm and start playing one strum pair beat. If you do that here, a strong bass sound, then you need to stop Kodak the technique and start again. For example, it is like something like this. You need to stop and start again, but you need to hear the bass sounds. That's when you know that you play this correctly. Once you are confident with this one, you can start playing to strum sped beat. So it means you play on dance drum and up stone as it is, the same beat, same speed, reaches 100 bpm. Once you have confidence in the speed, you can go hired when the speed foot exempt, but I can set it up to 110 BPM and then do the same exercise. And of course you can go higher and higher upon T or you can keep up with the written. Once you are confident with these ones, then you can go back to 100 bpm and start combining the ones compared between the two Strom per beat. And then to start with, you start playing four times, wants to jump beat. And fourth times do stumps, bad beat. So it sounds something like this. And after you can do like Yvonne strum, pair beat and VT_2 Strom spare bead just to make it a little bit more difficult. After your confidence or at least exercises, you can go on third, that to do something more difficult for exemple will areas we cheat a Flamenco, audit them and put 150 the metronome, we can play that one. And we can also do the same exercise. But v now odd The Globe based to make the oxygens. Okay. 10. Muted Rasgueado: Staccato is a specific performance technique. It means that the court or a note is shortened by duration and there is a brief silence after, before the following court. So it means that it is something like this. So basically you are holding a cord and after you hit the dawn stroke crass Gatto and release it and you just touch the strings. And it is also called because of this reason, muted does get shadows. Because you mute the court. This technique works. The best man knew who had a barrier and then you can hit and release it very easily. But you can do the same technique with an open core. Does the best is to try to work, for example, an E minor chord and try to mute it. And then when you hold a minor chord, you can put two strings together with your index finger. And after you can use ada, your ring finger or liter thing to mute it, some people find it easier in one way or the other one. So it looks something like this with the ring finger or when the little finger it looks like this. For me, it is actually easier with finger two mu in the court. The next exercise we'll be to mute the a major chord and it will be in an open position as well. To do that one, you need to use only two fingers toward a major chord. So your index finger towards the e and the a naught, and your middle finger towards the C sharp note. Actually Discord is used widely in flamenco music because you have the other two fingers to do other stuff and to mu discord VAB or use the little finger. So it looks like this. Another way to add accents to conventional strumming is flicking the guitar body with your index finger. So after this lesson, you will learn something like this. It is done similar way as there was gad Ohm. Although instead of placing the Tom on the a string, it is more like in the mid air. And then you hit, you hit the body of the guitar and you end up on the strings. So the sound consist of mood and strings together. And you also use your wrist to on, a little bit more on the movement. Actually, this technique is widely used at the beginning of the songs or end of the songs. But not many people or nobody is using to strum continuously like this because it can be quite tiring for the index finger. Okay. 11. Rasgueado Variations: Now we will learn about the three and forced through Kresge albedo. And the threes through Kresge shadow looks like this. For the techniques three fingers are used and they are always related in the following order. Ring finger, middle finger, index finger. The Tom B's placed on the low E string, just resting on the string, not pushing it down the other fingers or had in the shape of a feast and flick down from the base of the tongue in such a way that after the downstroke, they end up just below the strings and remains slightly curved. It is very important to make contact with the bass notes. Otherwise, the sound 1B so strong. So I mean, this sound. So it shouldn't sound like war, like adding one more note, you will get the four-stroke truss Guangdong. And it can sound like this or like this. In the first variation, the index finger is used to end the sequence to play both a downstroke and an upstroke. So it will be ring, middle index, index up. So ring with a index, index up. The second variation there, start the finger and it will look like this. Little ring, middle index, liter, ring, middle index. So how do you practice this together? Rolling Ross GAD ohm, for example, you can set up the metronome to 80 BPM, and you can play three notes per bit, or you can set up any speed that you are comfortable with. And you can hold any chord. Now via hoard an E minor chord and I, we replace three notes per beat on 80 BPM. Once you are comfortable with this technique, you can set up the metronome to higher and higher. For example, 90 or 100 bpm. And then you do the same exercise. But if you don't hear the bass sound, you need to stop and go drag the technique and go back again. You can do the same exercise on the four-stroke Kresge shadow, but you need to go Lu had been the speed because you play four notes, bear beat. So now I set up my metronome on to 60 BPM and I play the first variation. And lastly, you can do with the second variation with the same speed. The first few exercises will involve changing the base notes on the E5 cord and E5 courts at all, so-called power courts. And they are widely used in meta music, but the inflow in quotes, but to create dramatic and powerful effects. They had not major or minor courts because they do not have a major or minor. Third, they only have rootNode and perfect five foot exemple E5 looks like this. And what kind of note it causes stuff. So the root note is an E And the perfect five is a b. So a dial it consist of a ladder and then b. B. Now I would like to share with you a few more power courts. Dc's C5. This is a5. This is G5. And this is D5. Okay. 12. Hammer-on and Pull-off: Before going on, another technique needs to be introduced, and this is legato, which utilizing the hammer and the pool of technique. So Hammurabi is like this pool of it, like this. Legato means that the note played without intervening silence in between them. So technically, it means than the hammer and the pool of our played without the right-hand. So you just play one note actually when the right-hand and after. Then you do the hammer on you on the next note, which one of the other fingers on the left-hand? When the pool of the method is the same. So you don't play with your right hand, you the left-hand to odd, the next node. And 13. Tango with Rasgueado : In this lesson, I will show you a way to accompany law com Parsi tau. And after this lesson, you will learn something like this. Before I describe this technique, I just would like to say that Argentine tango players do not play like this. They do not mute every beat. And the original Miliangos is in 2 fourth time. It is just a technique that I developed and I think it sounds good when I accompanied law compositor. So there are two different ways to do this kind of technique. The first one is using the shadow. So you would your pump on the E string and after you odd beats via you incorporate new things in every single bit, after everything beat. So it looks like this. And then that is one part when you use the stories through Kresge shadow. And after you go back to the staccato or Newton, just GAD, oh, there is one more way to do this one, and it is using the downstroke and the flamenco triplet, and we are using the muting again. And then it sounds something like this. So instead of the three straw Kresge Addo VR using flamenco triplet, which is three nodes as well. So, and it sounds quite similar. Maybe there was gad obey is a little bit stronger sound. Yeah. 14. Alzapua as a Strumming Technique: The next lesson we'll be the Guam. And after this lesson, you will learn something like this. As oppose a type of triplet which is played with the tongue. And it occurs almost exclusively in flamenco guitar. Or the Flamenco guitarist used this technique to play solos or fast suttas. It can also be used as a lepton playing in non flamenco settings. To play the R's are poor. At first you place your tongue on the string value, you want to start it, and you do one BullGuard. So you go one note down, or one string down, you end up on the next string. The second movement is a turn. So you turn your wrist with your tongue and you turn back. So it is done. Turn, turn. Then you do the turn. You can go few strings down or oil the strings down. It doesn't really matter. So done. When you go back to the string, then it's good to have all of your other fingers just to end up just below the string. So you have a stable position. Also, you cannot pay to this movement and toward the God pay. You need to audit on the second movement. So it is done. But pay, turn back down for pay, turn back. Now the question is, how can you practice this and go fast? The best way to practice this east to make accents. So at first make accent on the first movement and play this for a while. And then you can make an accent on the second movement. And then make accent on the third movement until you are feeling more confident fitness technique. And then you can start the exercises. Okay? In this lecture itself. 15. Drumming Techniques on Spanish Guitar: The guitar itself can be used as a percussion instrument because the guitars body can produce a wide variety of percussive sounds if you hit in different places. So for example, if you hit here, it sounds different than hitting it here or here. At Firstly, we use the Roomba technique to drum on the guitar. So after this lesson, you will learn something like this. So the steps are, at first, you need to mute the guitar with your left hand. If you are right-handed guitarist. And then it is heat up, down, up. Actually this was in the seventh lesson, and it is exactly the same technique, but now we, they use it as a percussive technique. So when you mute it, you can just do it at first in one place. And after you can start hitting in different positions, for example, HIT closer the Sound tall and closer to the bridge. The next step would be to go even further. So one heat could be near the soundboard and the next heat could be over the bridge. So then it can look very nice in a live performance. And the last step could be that you move the whole technique and you do exactly the same thing on the guitar body. Or you can involve the string says val and the guitar body. It's really up to you how, how much you use this kind of drumming. The second technique that can easily be applied as a drumming technique is the up and down strumming. So after this lesson, you will learn something like this. This technique is actually previously described in lesson 12. At first, the list should be relaxed because all the movement is coming from the wrist. And then you are in Open Fist position and you go down it all of your fingers using the fingernails. And you go up the TM fingernails and you mute the strings with your left hand. So then you just go down, up, down, up. The best is to practice this with a metronome. So you can set up the metronome to any speed which is comfortable for you. You can do down our movement on Von beat. So I set up my metronome to 110 BPM and I plucked these it. And after, of course, you can go faster and faster with the metronome on TV, you can draw your wrist. You can do the same thing on the guitar body as well. The next step would be to make accent. So you can do, for example, down, down, up, down, up, down, up, down, up. And an extinct to move this to the guitars body. And then also you can be adopt Britain's fit this phone for example, you can be end up for four. So it via the down and up, and up and down, up and down. And on the body. It sounds like this. To make the previously described jumping a little bit more interesting, it is great to add hits with the whole hand to this type of strumming or drumming. And after this lesson, you will learn something like this. So the first thing to develop this kind of technique is to mute the strings with your left hand and you do the strumming with your right hand. And the first thing you could do is down, up, down, up, hit down, up, down, up heat. Then to make this a little bit more interesting, you can do the down, up, down, up on the guitars body and the hit on the strings. I'll study it can combine all these techniques together and develop different rhythms. And you can reach something very interesting. Foot exempt, you can do down than up, hit Dan, Dan, Dan or pit. And then you can do the same thing on the guitars, buddy. Or you can do the up and down strumming on the guitar and by the end, the hits on the strings. The next thrumming technic I saw you veal been flamenco triplet because this can be used as a drumming technique to, and after this lesson, you will learn something like this. So at first, you need to knew the strings again, that your left hand and after the sequence is down the cure, middle and drink thing. And turn your hand with your thumb and turn back. So you can find this technique on less than ten, where it is explained a little bit more deeply. But once you are confident with this technique, you can start using it as a drumming technique. And also the fun part will start when you start combining this one with different techniques. For example, the up-and-down Strom. And you can make amazing rhythms. For example, you can do down than, than, than, than up. And then the flamenco triplets three times. So. And then first. And let's see how does it sound on the guitar body. And it's a little bit difficult to do this one on the guitars body, but after practicing, and surely you can get the right sound. Of course, there are many other ways to jump on the guitar. These are just the techniques that I developed and I used to drum on the guitar. Of course, when you play with another player, it can be much more fun. And the other player can do some kind of base drumming, core, basic drumming. And you can do the soul was with these techniques. So the question is how to do this kind of base drawings? There are a lot of different ways that people use or IOUs. And one can be then you use your tongue and your three fingers or your index middle ring finger to drum on the guitar, your tongue is hitting the breach and these three fingers hits the body. So it sounds something like this. There are another way that you can do this kind of Bayes drumming. And it is using both of the hands. And you use this kind of Bongo style of drumming on the guitar. So it is something like this. There is even a style which is called percussion guitar that people use on the steel string guitar. And it sounds very spectacular when they play and drawn. At the same time, there is actually a record company called candidate records who signed the best guitarist in the word in this kind of music. So I highly recommended to check it out.
