It reminds me of a couple of quotations...they say "A cat may look at a king" . There is also the Oscar Wilde quotation: “We are all lying the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars”.
Anyway I am flattered to be mentioned in the same sentence as two of my guitar heroes.
Your comments about the right hand are helpful, particularly the tensing of the middle finger.I think you are right too about the excessive resistance in apoyando/rest stroke. although I think the problem is possible due to the position of the right hand and fingers rather than nail profile. Anyway I am slowly working on it, I find apoyando incredibly challenging but am trying to practice all the more on it.
Hello Porgy by the way and welcome to our little (and hopefully, growing) group....my guitar is made by Admira. It is a fairly inexpensive spanish guitar which I bought from a local music shop thirty years ago. I am still fond of it although I sometimes daydream about buying another guitar. We'll see! The guitar strings I am using are Pro Arte. Think it is about time I put some new ones on!
