Dedillo technique

How do you play a Dedillo across 3 strings? The piece Indifférence from Dyens contains such a technique.
Could you give me some ideas to play this?

As the Dedillo is the picking of one string with one finger in both directions, I suppose you mean the same over three strings.
A life without music is possible but very poor.

Ah, Roland Dyens. If the dedillo is over the three trebles, damp the D string with the thumb and complete the strokes with the RH index finger in the directions shown on the music. The strokes are usually explained in the front of the music - Dyens always includes a 'cheat sheet' of technique explanations in front.
