Li Jie is one of the world's best guitarists. It's kind of like comparing someone who has taking up jogging with whoever won the 10,000m in the olympics. Two different planets.lionus wrote: yet when I see Li Jie's clip on it, it's a whole different story all together.
If you're new to nylon strung guitars, then the action will seem high even if it is exactly as it should be. Measure the action at the 12th fret, from the top of the fret to the underside of the string, on both bass and treble sides. It should be about 4mm bass and 3mm treble. Anything more and you can lower it to those figures, but if it's already less, then reducing it further will probably result in unacceptable buzzing.Garry B wrote:Hello all.
I've been trying to learn Koyunbaba but i'm stuck on the third movement, i am using an old 70s/80s guitar made by Crown (i've not heard of them before but i'm relatively new to nylon strung acoustics). My main problems are how to keep the thumb working correctly and how to keep the barre solid. barres are ridiculously difficult on the guitar the action is ridiculously high. Does anyone know the safest method of lowering action please?
Thanks very much.
