I've heard rasgueo but not rasqueado. Also, I though it was with a g, not a q. Body is caja, but are you sure cuerpo can also be used?

Riff is mostly used with electric guitars to refer to figure or part of a solo. I'm not sure that requinto can be used like that.

I only know 'requinto' as a name for a smaller guitar (usually with a single cutaway).

AngelicaDeAlquezar March 16, 2011 10:00 AM

In trio music played around here, some guitar solos that need a certain skill to play fast notes are called "requintos". That is why I thought it might be related to electric guitar riffs. :)


Chamín Correa is a guitar player, famous for his "requintos"...

You're right, Tomísimo:

Básicamente, la guitarra está compuesta por la caja de resonancia, el mástil, el puente, el diapasón, los trastes, las cuerdas y el clavijero. (WKPD)
