    I want to learn how to play flamenco guitar and so far nobody around my area can help me much, I understand choros which are from brazil, but flamenco guitar is awesome.............
    If anyone can map out the strumming patterns I would be greatly happy.
    And I'm also new to this forum, so if I like it, I may post some stuff as well such as music theory, counterpoint and harmony, secondary functions inversions and all of the good stuff that is hidden deep in a music building. Peace

    The fundamental compáses are:
    1. Soleá (12-beat)
    2. Bulería (12-beat)
    3. Siguiriya (12-beat)
    4. Alegría (12-beat)
    5. Tientos (4-beat)
    6. Tangos (4-beat)
    7. Guajíra (12-beat)
    8. Petenera (12-beat)
    9. Fandango (3-beat)

    Hi! i'm also a newbie, and honestly i don't know anything more than standard 4/4 alternate picking they teach in the first few lessons...
    This flamenco style sounds like something new - can u name some good flamenco songs so that people who haven't heard it before can get initiated?

    Try any books by Paco Pena. They are great.

    hey bro.. flamenco is simple but requires a steady practice everyday for at least an hour. Forget about compass etc.. first learn the rasgeodo technique till you develop strength in your fingers..may take 4 months.. then it slowly unfolds lots of flamenco secrets… all the best
