|Flamenco Guitar fla·men·co gui·tar noun \flə-ˈmeŋ-ˌkō gə-ˈtär\
00:34A Flamenco Guitar is a nylon strung guitar similar to a classical guitar. The main difference is the choice of wood for the back and sides.
In order to emphasize the percussive and bright sounds which are part of Spain's fabulous flamenco dance music, the back and sides are of a light colored and light density wood, usually Spanish cypress.
Flamenco players usually want low action for fast playing, and actually prefer a little string "snap" or "buzz" which adds to the percussive dance rhythms.
