A flamenco guitar is a type of classical guitar made for flamenco music.
The flamenco guitar is perhaps the most Spanish guitar of them all. In the mid 1800s, Andalusian luthiers made instruments in a wide range of prices, largely based on the materials used and the amount of decoration.
The cheapest guitars were often simple, basic instruments made from local woods like cypress
Golpe: Percussive finger tapping on the soundboard at the area above or below the strings. This requires a golpeador (tap-plate) in order to protect the surface of the guitar.
Picado: Single-line scale passages performed apoyando but with more attack and articulation.
Rasgueado: Strumming done with outward flicks of the right hand fingers, done in a huge variety of ways. A nice rhythmic roll is obtained, supposedly reminiscent of the bailador’s (flamenco dancer) feet and the roll of castanets.
Alzapua: A thumb technique which has roots in oud plectrum technique. The right hand thumb is used for both single-line notes and strummed across a number of strings. Both are combined in quick succession to give it a unique sound.
Tremolo: Done somewhat differently from the conventional classical guitar tremolo, it is very commonly played with the right hand pattern p-i-a-m-i.
