Great observations Mark, I wasn't paying attention to any of the symbol markings on the bass line during the readings earlier this week.
I paid more attention to them in a practice session earlier today, it sounds a lot better and more bouncy, I could envision a whimsical lad/lass skipping up and down the street
I was getting better results on the arpeggios using the following right-hand fingerings
Measure 7 Amaj: (p/i) m i m i m (p/i) , used a left hand mini-pinky bar on fret 5 for the high 'e' and 'a' notes
Measure 23 Amaj (descending): (p/m) i a m i p p
Measure 15 & 31: D maj: (p/i) m i m i m i -- no thumb for final D bass note, used index and got a treblier/louder rest stroke kind of sound on the descend
I didn't like the suggested left hand fingering for the A Maj in bar 23 either, I use a partial cejilla/bar with the left hand index on fret 2 after the high 'a' and 'e' notes have sounded and let the right hand do its magic
May re-post this piece over the weekend
