This is a tutorial series covering some basic, introductory classical guitar techniques of the right hand.

Rasgueado is a technical strum in flamenco and classical guitar that includes the use of the back of the fingernails in sequence to give the impression of a very rapid strum. There are several types of rasgueado that employ differing numbers of fingers, allowing for a variety of rhythmical accentuations and subdivisions of the beat. Often the thumb is used on the opposite stoke as the fingers.
