Recorded simple arpeggio
fingers not parallel
At least to my ear, sound is "warmer" when not parallel - strings seem to remain on nail a little longer. Carrying this tone over to my exercises is my challenge
great experiment. This is precisely the sort of thing you should be doing, trying different attack etc.
As you've discovered, angled attack gives a warmer sound because the string slides over the nail and is pushed down rather than sharper release of the straight across technique. both have their place and add to the range of sounds at your disposal.
You've made amazing progress over these last few years, keep it up.
