To play the Picado in the way I describe in my book “Flamenco Guitar Method“, is admittedly slightly exaggerated, but it does have a didactical background. Many guitarists interested in flamenco guitar, come from the classical guitar, or the finger style guitar. The Apoyando (rest stroke) is rarely used in fingerstyle guitar. In classical guitar the alternate picking of i and m is often performed with the fingers extended. To get free of this approach, we must demand the impossible to achieve the possible.
