Default How to Learn Flamenco?

If anyone on here plays Flamenco how did you start?

I have a practice track with intense Flamenco and all I can do with it is play rhythm.

Can an electric with light strings play Flamenco or is a real Nylon Guitar Required?

Finger picks, good, bad, required or preference of for Flamenco?

Thanks for all the replies.

To play flamenco properly, you need a flamenco guitar. No electric will ever cut it. Most nylon string acoustics won't do either, you need a flamenco guitar, one with the proper golpe plates and so on.

As for technique, find a teacher. Flamenco is a VERY rigid style, with no margin for bad habits or strange peculiarities. If you try and learn flamenco without a teacher you WILL **** it up and teach yourself bad habits that will have to be un-learned later.

Thanks for the reply. Flamenco is my goal.

Do you have any suggestions for generic Flamenco Guitar manufactures? Or do I have to go to a country like Argentina to pick up a good deal?

I don't have the money for either but I can save up. Journeying for a guitar is a beautiful journey when it is not expensive.

What countries for Flamenco do you know have the best authentic and cost affordable Flamenco guitar?
