So i've never really encountered any strumming like this before.
It's like triplets but strumming. Now i'm a really proficient tremolo / galloper and this is a similar fashion but i have no idea how to do it with a whole chord.
I'm assuming it has to be fingerpicked and i'd have to use multiple fingers or something?
If anyone knows about this style of playing or has any advice it'd be much appreciated! Thanks!

It's a flamenco technique that's called er....rasgueado I believe.
I can't play it, or know where to start, I just know of it. Check youtube for videos to get a better idea
Very cool track!

It's just fast strumming. Flamenco style. I do it by strumming downwards quickly with different fingers. Try looking on youtube. It's a lot easier to see than to explain.

Thanks a lot for that. Watched a few video's and have been practicing along to the song for a good 30-45minutes now. It's pretty tough but i'm improving.. Would be nicer if i had a nylon and not steel stringed guitar
