Overall very nice! At some points the repeated notes sound a tiny bit stuttering (like country guitar chickenpicking
). May I ask what right hand fingering you use for those passges? p-a-m-i or p-i-m-i?
Im practising the same study at the moment, I'm using a Noad edition where the fingering is p-a-m-i. It will take me some time until I'll play as fluently as you though.
Thanks for your comments. I'm using p-m-i-m. I agree that the issue you outline is the main problem with this rendition. I think when I play it at this speed my fingers sort of trip over one and other. It may be something to do with the fact I usually push the string in quite a bit, when playing slower pieces, in order to produce a fuller sound. However, it appears that when playing repeated notes on a single string, at a very fast tempo, this doesn't work and one maybe has to play these kind of passages with a lighter touch, using mostly the nail and less flesh.
Personally, I don't agree with Noad's fingering of p-a-m-i. The passages in question are not examples of tremolo and the emphases in the group of four notes are different. In each group of four, the strongest note is the first one, followed by the 3rd. I think most players would find that emphasising the third note, using p-a-m-i very difficult. If you play it p-m-i-m or p-i-m-i, I would think that's easier.
