I'm Still learning Classical Guitar, and i plan to learn flamenco as well.

My question is from classical experience, can i play flamenco music but just learning the right hand techniques (Rumba,Tremolo...)?

My question is most likely:

Is flamenco built on top classical techniques?

Cheers.

Here is what I read from my guitar book:

Most authorities agree that the best approach to flamenco technique is through careful study of basic classic guitar technique. Because of the unusual and striking effects required to perform true flamenco music, the playing technique is necessarily somewhat different; however, the basic technique of playing the classic guitar, correctly applied, remains the same whether the instrument is used for classica, popular, or flamenco music.

Basically I think the left hand is pretty much the same, but techniques of the right hand (the ones you pointed out) should be specially learned.

@SmartyTwiti I'm reading Classic Guitar Technique 3rd edition by Aaron Shearer and Thomas Kikta. I just started learning the classic guitar. –  Menglan Xiang Feb 22 at 23:44
