The learning method is classified into two main sections: the Rumba and the Bulerias styles, and demonstrates all of the characteristic flamenco techniques, such as “thumb technique, picado, rasgueos, tremelo, alzapúa and arpeggios”, within the context of flamenco rhythm in these two styles. After a thorough learning of the rhythms and technique, we are then presented with musical pieces and highly rhythmic variations including those from more recent flamenco styles.

In addition, there is a special section on right hand technique with the aim of achieving a clean and strong sound, and a history of the evolution of flamenco guitar, explained by the flamencologist Norberto Torres. Finally, the complete transcription of Niño Miguel’s famous piece “Vals flamenco” has been included here for the first time, being an impressively creative piece of music.

There are brief introductions to the rhythmic, harmonic, melodic and historic theories of each new style covered. The styles performed are: Rumba, Bulerias, Fandangos, Verdiales, Taranto, Tanguillos, Soleá, Soleá por bulerías, Alegrías, Siguiriya, Tientos, Tangos, Farruca, and Guajira.
