Thanks Lawler, it's encouraging to know someone gets it. I suppose for some I will have to post a video of some superhuman technical feat I've managed with such insight, although it is our humanity and our struggles with it that communicate the most. A robot or computer can be programmed to perform with more effective free stroke (using capitalist ideology terms) than Segovia or Julian Bream. Would anyone care?Lawler wrote:Yes.

First of all it depends on how you define "great". Then I would say that there are many, many more that do not achieve this "great" technique. Explain that. In every practical undertaking we instinctively use our bodies in a way that feels comfortable and easy. I can drive, swim, run, jump etc. perfectly well. With endless hours of unguided practice at any one of those activities I might also be lucky enough to achieve a superior level of expertise.elsewhere scottszone wrote:There are many professional classical guitarists and teachers with great right hand technique that managed to develop it without perfect descriptors or dissertation level explanations. Explain that.
Experience may be a teacher - not the best. Look at a few very experienced drivers - often some of the worst on the road. They just drive badly with ease.also elsewhere scottszone wrote:experience is the best teacher
Ha - I have learned not to do that here (my sense of humour doesn't translate very well) and in doing so perhaps begun to miss others' attempts.scottszone wrote:I state the simply obvious in the spirit of amusement

Plucking closer to the neck gets a warmer tone, closer to the bridge gets a brighter tone. Plucking softer will get a quieter sound, plucking harder will get louder. Pluck faster to increase tempo, slower to decrease tempo. Experiment to find the many shades and colors in-between.Robbie Flamerock wrote:Well, there are different ways of getting different timbres and the like. You should think about how to achieve them.
All those who are under the impression that music-making on the guitar (or any instrument) is about studying the trajectory of the fingers need to read, think about and digest these two statements.Lawler wrote:Yes. Form follows function.scottszone wrote:focus on the music
Well, any other instrument has such discussion of fingers, sound etc. Just google another forum...Denian Arcoleo wrote:All those who are under the impression that music-making on the guitar (or any instrument) is about studying the trajectory of the fingers need to read, think about and digest these two statements.Lawler wrote:Yes.
