1-Finger Rasgueado (i)

The 1-finger rasgueado (I) is seemingly the easiest one to play but without the correct expression and execution it can sound robotic and make our playing sound monotonous. The “i” rasgueado is played with by extending and/or contracting the index (I) finger across 2 or more strings and the trick to this is to apply a LOT of dynamic variation to each movement in order to add groove to your music.

It’s easier said than done so in this video, I share examples of the i or i-i rasgueado and share a few exercises so that you can develop this technique correctly. This video is appropriate for beginner & intermediate students of both flamenco and classical guitar.
