I don't think it's necessary to measure the exact distance. It just has to be enough that finger movements don't get in conflict. To find the right position I suggest the following exercise with alternate picking p i:
This depends very much on the physiognomy of the thumb and the shape of the thumbnail. For me the arched thumb works perfectly, others feel very uncomfortable this way.
Sorry for over-mentioning my issue, but I'm still struggling with the 1st tremolo section of Sueno en la floresta, it seems like only when I play p follow through I can get a decent tremolo sound no matter which pattern I try (classical pami or flamenco piami), my exact problem with p follow through is that it is very inconsistent - sometimes I can do it comfortably, other times I can't do it at all, plus when playing like that for a while, the next day I would experiment pain at the point which connect my thumb flesh with my thumb nail (I believe it is call thumb pad)kmurdick wrote: ↑Wed May 17, 2017 12:49 pmYou can see in tremolo pieces that many good players either use P rest stroke, or if they use P free stoke, they follow through to the 'i' finger. I believe that the most efficient stroke is to follow through if you can. Watch Anna at 1:00.
