Thumb technique 

I have been working on tangos and I was watching an old youtube video by Anders and thought it was time i learn this thumb technique used near the end of the video @ 2:41. I don't understand the mechanics, maybe someone can make a slowly played video explaining

thx!

Muy Bien Ramzi !!!
Now maybe I will join the club and (re) learn that falseta.

So DavRom... the price for this job is:
That you upload a video.

Cool. But when the time comes you're going to have to settle for just audio

There are easier alzapua falsetas out there, maybe find one on youtube and work your way up to this one. Alzapua is a pretty basic and common technique so it's likely time you get started on it.
Now, go forth and thumb!

Yes, you´re right. Everything is relative and personal, but compared to most top-player alzapua, this is not a difficult one. (ever listened to Gerardo Nuñez ¿?)
I´m looking forward to an audio upload.
