Hi Colin, Thanks for your help.
So with some of the notes, we have to mute the bass string and the same time that we pick? For example, in bars 4 and 5 in Polyphonie 1, you pluck the bottom E in bar 4, and then at the start of bar 5 mute the bottom E and pluck the A.
I can manage it, but it feels clumsy and therefore perhaps not the correct technique. I have to kind of bend my thumb in order to use the knuckle closest to the nail to mute.
Am I doing it right and it just feels clumsy, or is this another way it can be done?
I found this video, what do you think? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f0LW-SWspQE
