In the beginning, I found it challenging to coordinate. This technique will be of tremendous help when you try to control the voices in advanced pieces.
With practice, it will get easier and at some point you will use it without thinking about it, but letting your ear guide your body to do what you want to hear. Another way to reinforce the control of voices is to play each separately so that you do really hear them as separate voices. Combined with the exercise above, it will help you to control individual voices in a piece.
I am still working hard on this for all of my repertoire pieces. Balancing the voicing is to me, one of the great challenges of playing classical guitar.
As you said, challenging, but fun.
When the sun shines, bask.
Classical Guitar forever!
