Differing Rasgueados 

I am just starting to work on a very basic Alegrias but what I am noticing, from what my teacher is showing me and the videos I have seen, is that most people use the a m i i rasgueado whereas I am being taught to use i s a m (btw what is the pinky finger called? I have seen it referenced as e, s, x, q). My teacher doesn't seem to use a m i i at all, is his way more *old school*.

I also seem to be pretty comfortable using the a i i triplet as opposed to using p a i and I have yet to see anyone using that one.

While I know there are no right and wrong ways per se, I do notice a majority of people using a certain technique over another.

RE: Differing Rasgueados (in reply to TGerman

Today most players use a m i i , a m i i.... and so many other ras. f.e. i i a, i i a or p a i, p a i. But there are tons of other ways doing ras.. We have a big threat about that theme.
The best way is to learn all rasguados. Than you can choose by yourself which you like most.
e s x q??
p pulgar
i index
m medio
a anular
s-small finger?

The little finger is referred to as c (chiquito), or x. I've never seen it written s..?

Anyway, the pattern i c a m, is one that Juan Serrano uses, I believe. It's pretty awkward for me, but he gets a great, great sound out if it.

Triplets with P always sound different and can reach higher maximum volume. I guess it is always a mixture of what sound you want to have, and how complicated it is doing that movement in a piece, where you have to adjust it to the things you play before and afterwards.
Ive heard that they also use pmp as quartet instead of amii or whatever.

Yes, that is only one that Juan uses. It took me a few days to learn the various ways that Juan plays rasgueados, but then Juan was one of my teachers.

Juan learned the i, s, a, m, i rasgueado from his father. Remember that Juan has accompanied some of the most famous dancers and singers in the history of flamenco. He will use a rasgueado that complements the performer. His approach also has some very real advantages compared to other rasgueado forms.

For those that are interested I have a document called "101 Rasgueados", available from my web site.

The "correct" rasgueado to use is the one that complements what you are playing.

RE: Differing Rasgueados (in reply to Escribano

I have often defined the different ways to describe the fingers of the left hand on flamenco forums. Yet another way to do so is to use the following:

P - Pulgar - Thumb

I - Indice - Index

M - Medio - Middle

A - Anular - RingFinger

m - meñique - little finger

This is what I learned when I was a child, from my first teacher.
