Chu Bun wrote:Congrats on your new guitar. In the arpeggio piece, why you moved your whole hand when plucking with the thumb? You didn't do that on the second piece. In general, you should keep your hand sturdy and only move the finger when plucking a note. In some of the threads in the public forum, the discussions go even further such as 60% of the movement from knuckle, 35% from middle joint, 5% from tip joint, or something crazy like that.
Thanks Chu... Have no clue why I did it on the first and not on the second piece.... Good thing you mentioned it, need to correct asap bc I might be doing it often. Keeping track of all variables is not easy to achieve: Melody, dynamics, muting, correct left hand pressure, right hand figering and hand movement
among others.... as per the percentages, you said it, crazy stuff !....i wont even go there.
