Arpeggio Exercises 

Any good flamenco sounding arpeggio exercises to break the boredom?


Ah well, there was a fantastic passion there, in my case anyway. I discovered flamenco
very early on. It grips you in a way that you can't get away - Paco Pena

RE: Arpeggio Exercises (in reply to Cervantes

My go-to at the moment for arpeggios is Gerardo Nunez's piece "Trafalgar". If I remember correctly, there are tabs for it with his Encuentro CD and it's in his tab book "El Arte de Gerardo Nunez"
To play the entire piece is insanely hard but he plays a lot of different arpeggio patterns in it. I usually just pick a part and make a loop out of it so it's nice for practice and since it's an actual piece
it sounds like music much more than some exercices do.


J'ouvre une parenthèse. Si vous avez un peu trop d'air, je la refermerai tout de suite.

Do you know a basic alegrias escobilla? Or any simple tangos arpeggio falsetas?

Gerardo Núnez has excellent exercises in his book.

You tried learning this?

or this?

both have tricky arpeggios and sound better than boring exercises. For the latter, it is just a bog standard up-down arpeggio used as a kind of remate, but mixed with the other techniques getting it consistently clean as you clock up the metronome can be challenging.
