RH nails making string buzz.

Post by Jason Hensley » Wed Apr 26, 2017 5:27 pm

Hi when I'm playing things that are quicker like scale runs I'm noticing that surface of my nails is hitting the preceding string and creating a buzz when its still ringing. Is this a technique problem? Do I need to slow it down and make sure this sound isn't occurring?

Definitely slow down anytime a problem occurs, whatever it is. This one sounds like your fingers are moving around too much. Quicker needs to be smaller as well as faster.

That was helpful thank you very much. My problem was my angle of attack. I appreciate that video it was helpful in more than just that regard.
