florentin... that is almost a quote from my teacher... great minds think alike eh?Florentin wrote: I think that tremolo should NOT be a reflex-type motion, like tapping your fingers on the table. I think it should be a movement that is completely CONTROLLED, like arpeggios for instance.

Florentin wrote:How do you practice your tremolo?
Here's one way I like to have my students practice tremolo:
- PI, PM, PA, on different string combinations (2nd and 1st, 3rd and 1st, and so on, with the thumb moving to the different strings)
- PMI, on different string combinations
- PAMI, on different string combinations
- play easy tremolo study: Sagreras has one, in his first book, I think, or maybe his second? My favorite study for this purpose is Carcassi's Op.60, #7. The reason I like it is because it uses both tremolo, and arpeggios, so the student has to shift between the two techniques. I also like this study, because the tremolo does NOT have to be played very, very fast - if they play it too fast, they'll never get the arpeggios that follow.
- play sections from Requerdos and sections from Barrios' Una Luminosita Por El Amor De Dios (not sure of the spelling here...)
- then, they can play an entire tremolo piece.
