Thank you, Dave, for such a nice comment! Actually, I think attacking strings at an angle generally produces warmer tone and has more potential. When I just started learning CG the tutorial pointed that the right angle is the only right way I think it makes sense for beginners (to establish good hand positions). Also, watch Dmitri Nilov right hand tutorial videos. I'm surprised how he manages to produce good tone with right angle and keeping the hand close to the bridge. I have to keep the hand over the sound hole, otherwise it sounds weird.DaveMoutrie wrote: ↑Sun May 21, 2017 12:30 pmSounds really great mate!
I think you have the levels spot on and the sound is nicely synched up with the video.
Now that you have some decent recording equipment, we can all hear how beautifully you play. You seem to favour a John Williams techniue with the right hand at right angles to the strings, whereas I tend to go for a bit more of and angle - more of a Julian Bream technique.
I enjoyed listening to you and look forward to hearing you play the other pieces. I think the vibrato worked well also.
BTW, I just replaced the 1st Savarez string with a d'Addario high tension string, now it does not sound that harsh But also has less sustain Will post Samba Lele in a couple days.
By the way, Nesta Rua style is strikingly similar to a Russian romance. I would never say it is Brazilian
