AE: Latinesque

Area of Expertise : Latinesque

Latinesque styles of strumming incorporate a variety of Latin rhythms and rasguado right-hand techniques. To earn your AE Latinesque patch demonstrate four of the strums on this page. At least one strum should be demonstrated in the context of a song. The other three patterns may be demonstrated with a chord progression of your choice. You may also demonstrate all four strums in the context of one song. Demonstrated strums should keep a consitent beat with no noticeable pauses between chords. Please refer to the strumming shorthand guide for any unfamiliar symbols.
