¡Rumba Flamenca! for Solo Guitar Tutorial
Today I want to share with you my arrangement of the popular Spanish/Flamenco piece Rumba Flamenca. The Rumba is a common flamenco dance form (Palo) characterised by the rhythm 3 – 3 – 2. A Rumba is traditionally played at a slow to medium pace but this arrangement is more dramatic at faster tempi.
I would say it is at an advanced/intermediate level as there are a number of techniques happening at the same time. These include melodic playing, a bass part and accompanying arpeggios. Balancing these elements is a bit tricky but with slow practice you will get there. I would recommend keeping a metronome handy.
