Many thanks to guit-box for your tireless efforts to find the right stroke. Your threads on this topic helped me a lot. The problem with FD for me is that I lack the complete process of moving the right hand on the guitar. When I mean I found a right process to do the process of stroke at the one day, I can not repeat that next day.
Also, I do not get a proper rest in the hand when I'm sitting at the instrument The analysis of guit-box helped a lot to break the stroke into its individual components. I now practice every single component separately.
1) The knuckle brings the finger to the string. Not more. The hit area is between flesh and nail.
2) Then the middle joint starts his work. I keep the DIP relatively stiff. With a kind of scratching motion I move my finger over the flesh and the nail, while the knuckle does not move or moves very little
3) Short stroke without effort.
After that the stroke is over and I bring the finger back to the original position, or I stay in the stroke position and wait for another finger, like an arpeggio. Who reminds this to the description of Phillip Hii, I agree.
What I do not, or can not do at this time is the flexible DIP. In the attempt to pluck so, the dystonic reflex appears immediately. Maybe I'll do that later. The full relaxation of the hand I get only when the guitar is flat on my knees, like a hawaii guitar. I support the forearm and wrist with a rolled-up towel, which I lay lengthwise on the top and put my arm on it. I know that this is not the way to playing guitar, but it is the first time in over two years that my hand feels relaxed and i can pluck without dystonic effects. I have the hope that there will be such neuroplastic changes and that I can set up the guitar again.
Thanks once again to guit-box, that I found a course of movement through his help.
