Picado

- What is picado?
- It is an alternate picking technique used for soloing in Flamenco. Index and Middle fingers are used in an alternate way. The thumb is placed on the low E string, when you play the higher strings and you always need to end up on the above string with your fingers, this way you will get a stronger sound. Glassical guitarists play more free-stroke so they have a softer sound.

- What is important?
- Never repeat fingers, otherwise you cannot go fast.
- Always make really little movements in both hands, with big movements it is hard to gain speed.
- Always have a little nail, if you nail is too long it can stuck while making the movements, if you have no nail the sound will not be so strong.
