Chanteuse is a fan favorite and a song that my students always have fun learning. From a teaching perspective, it offers a wonderful opportunity to discuss the use of open strings to facilitate quick position shifts on the fretboard, a touch of triplet rasqueado, tambora and other impressive percussive techniques. Chanteuse is solidly composed around an e minor chord, is all about the rhythmic groove and is really fun to play! Once you've spent some time with the music, feel free to schedule an online guitar lesson, specifically tailored to learning this piece.
"Rosita" (rumba) for solo guitar in G minor. Rhythm and melody are both the stars of this guitar solo, with the strumming hand weaving effortlessly in and out of both. This composition requires intermediate to advanced classical technique, as well as an understanding of basic flamenco rasqueados.
