Practice, practice and more practice

Just got in some practice. I really don't do this enough. My Flamenco instructor gave me an assignment that I have not done. I was supposed to do 200 triplet rasgueados each day. I really need to do them, because they are really hard and I suck at them. Your hand has to come up at twice the speed it goes down, you strike each string with your thumb on the way up, and on the way down you strike each string with your middle and ring finger (at once) followed by your thumb (evenly spaced). This is still very hard for me. Supposedly it is one of the harder techniques to learn. Blahhhh

It was nice to play with my digital 8 track again. I recorded a simple Rhumba and soloed along with it (I suck at soloing too).

My Flamenco instructor is the amazing Eric Jaeger from Children of the Revolution

Go buy their albums and see them in concert!

Current Mood: Very humble
