Enhancing Ability & Increasing Speed

Differentiating the Cuatro Even More

We’ve reached a great moment in time when we can start to see the difference between the Cuatro and other musical instruments in terms of how it is played. Some differences have already been covered such as the anatomy of the Cuatro and certain specific strumming techniques used for maintaining certain rhythms. Now it is time to have a closer look at another aspect the instrument is famous for…..playing at high speed!

Strum Like There is No Tomorrow

When seeing some cuatristas play, we can notice the speed which with these people play. This ability does not come overnight and needs to be trained for considerably. When you get the hang of it, you will definitely love to let out all emotionĀ on the instrument. But do be careful!! Anxiousness can lead to pain sometimes, so do make sure you take your time when studying & practicing high speed rhythms such as Joropo.
