One of my ukulele New Year resolutions is to learn to play flamenco. Does anyone know of any resources, either Youtube, other sites, books that focus on the teaching of playing flamenco on the ukulele? If you do, please post them to this thread.

start by learning how to count in cycles of 12

the accents go in 3-6-8-10-12

so you count 1-2-THREE-4-5-SIX-7-EIGHT-9-TEN-11-TWELVE

with that form of counting you can play Solea, Alegrias, Bulerias, Seguirillas.
in 4/4 you play tangos, rumbas tarantos

check some of my vids in youtube (paticochile) if you have more questions, just ask

Many thanks patico. I now know more types of flamenco, learning something new already. I visited your Youtube channel and subscribed.

Can you be more specific. I can't see it using your search terms. Cheers

Check out Uke Minutes n 82 (flamenco finger picking I), 83 (flamenco finger picking II) and 84 (flamenco warm up).

Good luck, still too advanced for me! :)

There's a quite thorough description of the various flamenco rhythms here (http://www.oscarherrero.com/ingles/flamenco_rythms.pdf)

Thanks Lalou. I'll find this useful. I see you're from the NE. Iused to live in the pit mining villages as a kid, before Thatcherism closed them down. Cheers

The flamenco triple strum, and applied to flamenco chords, by none other than JS, himself.

Then, when you really have it down, it'll sound something like this--and please notice at approx 25 seconds into the video, he is doing the exact same two chords he teaches in the above video.:
