This is a nice set of rumba strumming patterns. Also, for those interested in accompanying flamenco dancers, I suspect practicing these patterns would be useful for building-up strength in the wrist of the strumming hand.

I love this lesson top notch - absolutely 100% worth every penny. A little patience and lots of practice and you will soon be playing and sounding just as in the video preview.

I hope there is a follow up.

This is very high class and excellent Rumba lesson and if Flamenco hade charged 100 dollars for this lesson I would easely have payed. This lesson is worth its "weight in gold".
If you are in love with Guitarplaying that is.

These are very useful and easy to understand lessons for Gipsy Kings style strumming. There are more strumming patterns than I have seen in any book or have learned with any teacher. The only suggestion I can make to this talented teacher is to include a l

Excellent. Clearly explained and videos well recorded. Just a bit expensive IMO, but again, in spanish standards. Here you can hire an hour class for 15/20 and books are cheaper than in USA.

This is an excellent lesson! You would have to pay 10 times the amount to get this many variations in face to face lessons. Not to mention you would have to have your own video camera.
