Flamenco guitar music

If you play a variety of styles such as Jazz, Latin, Classical and Flamenco, the most versatile guitar probably is a flamenco negra guitar, a kind of a high-bred between a classical and flamenco guitar. Classical guitars have a very beautiful enduring rich tone, but when we play rasqueados or falsetas in synch with the rhythms or compás of the Flamenco genres, generally, the large sustaining sound of classical guitars would become blurred or unclear. Traditionally a flamenco guitar has less sustain, projects a brighter, more percussive, drier sound with less overtones compared to a classical guitar. A Flamenco guitar responds instantly because they are lighter in weight and a bit smaller in body dimensions than a classical guitar. Flamenco guitars are generally built with a lower bridge to enable low string action setup supporting the execution of Golpes or rhythmic hand tapping on the guitar’s top. This is why many contemporary musicians of different music styles love flamenco guitars.
