You both picked up the same thing which I have been vaguely conscious about but ignoring. It has to do with the position and adjustment of my support on the new guitar, as that is where my right hand naturally falls at present. I hope I will not have to move the magnets but can simply play with the adjustments, but something clearly has to change. When I go to Calgary tomorrow I will use my old guitar which after much agony I finally got to a good position for both hands. I am glad that the support came with two sets of magnets at least.Ken Kim wrote: ↑Fri Sep 06, 2019 11:12 am
About your ponticello, your right hand is stuck there and sound little harsh without resonance on all of your recordings. Basic stroke should stay around rosette for balanced sound of bass and treble. You will have to learn freely moving around to change and vary the tone colors, although these right hand position will be introduced in D02.
Thank you much for this valuable tips, Rick.Rick Beauregard wrote: ↑Fri Sep 06, 2019 8:52 pmSomething to try to get speed on those scale passages is to employ p-i scales. This is sort of like lute technique and is a good skill to have in your bag. Practice by playing your normal scale exercises using p-i instead of i-m. You can get good speed once you master the technique, and it sounds great on these renaissance pieces.
Oh, yes! There are 4~5 of hiccups.
Jules, you must have applied rust-proofing before recording, because I did not see a rusty performer - your 'first attempts' provided a solid performance. I agree with Ken's appraisal vis-a-vis considering free stroke for Schiarazula marazula.
Linda, I am so glad to see that you are still on it. I got a little worried that maybe you had decided to forgo Delcamp this year. Looking forward to seeing your submissions.
