Impress your friends by incorporating some flamenco techniques into your next jam session!

Cordoba artist Ben Woods is best known for blending flamenco rhythms with heavy metal music.

In this short video, he breaks down the 7 flamenco building blocks to master: 5 Stroke Remolo, Picado, Arpeggio, Golpe, Alzapúa, Legato, and Rasgueado. We recommend playing along with the video, taking the time to pause, practice and repeat the different segments. Have fun!
