If you are entirely new to the Cuatro as a string instrument, before you play any song, the recommendation is always to start from the very beginning of the music theory. The first lessons and courses provided at TuCuatro are the very basics of how to play, what to look out for and getting the hang of the most basic techniques you need to know.

You’ll learn how to strum the cuatro and techniques to play your first rhythms, be rock, pop, ballads, waltz or more folk genres like Joropo or Bolero. Also, a very important part of music theory is to learn how to play scales at the fretboard.

Our lessons are categorized in several ways, one of which is the difficulty level. Try not to get ahead of yourself and to follow the curriculum as much as possible.
