Tom, this practice technique is proving most effective. Thanks again.Tom Poore wrote:If your right hand touch dissatisfies you, here’s something you might try. Play a four string block chord (all four notes simultaneously) with p-i-m-a. Now, before playing a chord, press harder into the string with your a finger than with your other fingers, and play the block chord. If you do this correctly, you’ll hear that the note produced by a is a bit louder than the other three notes. Then try pressing harder with the m finger. Then try it with i, and then finally with p. Notice that by pressing into the string harder with one finger, you can make that note stand out from the other three as you play a block chord.
With good practice, you’ll be able play repeated block chords, accenting a different note at will. This obviously is a useful expressive skill. It also refines your right hand touch.
