I go along with just getting used the technique with familiar chord progressions. That way one can focus on the right hand. For me, it is similar doing workouts on scales and arpeggios before working on actual pieces.Julian Ward wrote: ↑Sat Jan 12, 2019 9:57 amMost of the problem is the limited room on the other strings. Everybody's tremolo is better on the E string so the trick is to practice it solely on the B string. Nail shape/length and wrist angle affect tremolo enormously so you need to experiment but do persist with only practising on the B string. I get students to practise using chords - not pieces.

It's the B string that's killing me. I'm comfortable with planting and speed bursts, but can't keep it up for long and I feel as if I am constantly relearning this every night of practice. Sometimes I hear my nails click more often then the note itself, this doesn't happen on the high e though.
I keep my metronome on to practice (80 - 120bpm), and I use the first part of Recuerdos De La Alhambra as an additional tool. (Is it normal to change right hand position when change from the e to B string?)
Any tips or songs to make practicing a little more fun? How long did it take you to get awesome at tremolo on the B string? Did you learn speed, volume or evenness first?
Just wanna say again that I love this forum I have no one to talk classical techniques about lol
More to the right. Playing more perpendicular to the strings. Just a slight adjustment could help a lot. Just from my experience. Not taught.
