This falseta is based on an Estribillo, or chorus, of a sung Tangos. It’s groovy and very playable, though the tag at the end can be just a bit challenging. You don’t have to play that tag, but it’s a fun one to learn and good for practicing your arpeggio to picado transition.
Besides being a fun straight-ahead picado falseta for your Tangos, this one doubles as a great picado study. Practicing preparing your right hand placement and working on your left-hand / right-hand coordination to get the most out of this one.
