Very well done Stewart. Your Prelude was beautifully played in the first part before you started having problems. It's such a long and rambling piece, I also have issues playing it through without mental lapses.

The angle of your video made it impossible to see your right hand to see if you are alternating fingering on the Tarrega estudio.

I think your tremolo is coming along nicely. I am having trouble with it as well. Also trying to learn Amando.
All this time I thought I was making music; it was making me.

Thanks Rick, I've been doing some reading and thinking about my tremolo and so far have come up with...

1) It would help if I used another camera angle so I can see what my RH fingers are doing (for tremolo and other pieces)
2) There are lots of posts on the forum related to tremolo and the frustrations on achieving a smooth, fast tremolo. So far these have led to some interesting external pages/resources by Tom Poore, Douglas Niedt, Philip Hii etc.
3) The little work I have done in the past (an infrequently undertaken exercise from Pumping Nylon) has been focussed around control and planting. This might be very useful at some stage of development or for some people, but I think Tom Poore is on to something when he suggests at http://www.pooretom.com/learningtremolo1.html to 'start with speed and gradually add control'
4) I should also not get hung up on aiming for pami; instead seeing what works for me
5) The 'thumb swatting' that Douglas Niedt describes struck a chord too, as did the advice about working on the second string for tremolo to help minimise the RH finger movement
6) It will take time.... :lol:

Good stuff. I also like the tremolo lesson from Gohar. https://youtu.be/nsAs-rsKaZg
She also has a short book of exercises.
