I just realized that Im muting the strings differently than Prof. Delcamp. In Arpeggi Di Tre Note, measure 6, he plays D base note and right after he mutes the A base note from the preceding measure...ive been muting first the preceding note. Does it matter which order is done? ...or is it just whatever feel comfortable/easier to play?
In the scales...Mi minor has 1 sharp: F .. Why are C and D sharp on the way up?
The damping symbols can be a little misleading in that Carulli exercise/study compared to how its seen in other exercises with a tie/line back to a preceding note.
In the Carulli on p.22 treat the symbols as a reminder to dampen a preceding bass line note that may still be ringing before playing the bass note above the damping symbol. In that exercise the damping symbols are mainly reminding to dampen any stray/resonating open string bass notes (A, E, D) that can linger.
Regarding the minor scale question, keep in mind that the melodic minor scale borrows from the natural minor scale, but the 6th and 7th scale degrees are raised a semi-tone ascending, but natural when descending.
Natural Minor formula: 1 2 ♭3 4 5 6 7 8 (same ascending and descending)
Melodic Minor formula: 1 2 ♭3 4 5 #6 #7 8 (ascending), 8 ♮7 ♮6 5 4 ♭3 2 1 (descending)
