This means you have come to the WRONG place if you're looking for infomation about:

  • Playing with a plectrum or (God fobid) fingerpicks
  • Steel string acoustic guitars
  • Music genres like Blues, Heavy Metal, Indie, Punk etc
  • Pentatonic scales
  • Anything to do with electric guitar
  • Modes and similar music theory
  • Shredding, power chords, effects pedals, Etc, etc

I do not use terms like Guitar God or kick ass licks. Nor do I perform on stage bare chested wearing tight jeans or have extremely long hair. I do not screw up my face and shake my head a lot while I effortlessly rip through soaring solos under colored spotlights. I do however sweat profusely and occasionally thrust my pelvis erotically towards all the adoring groupies in the front row. NOT
OK. Let's keep it real.
If you want to learn flamenco strumming techniques and other challenging fingerstyle methods then...
Welcome Aboard...
You have come to the RIGHT place.
