Is funny how just a little thing can change your technique tremendously. I followed your advice to press down the string first, (i was just putting my fingers over the strings and plucking it) and it felt a lot lot better! thanks for this little but very useful adviceRasputin wrote: ↑Wed Jun 07, 2017 5:57 pmThere are lots of slow-motion videos of concert guitarists' right hands in another thread - you can find it easily from the Guitar technique subforum. Maybe they'd help answer your question.
I am no teacher but since nobody else has replied I will chip in:
I think the standard approach is that the point of contact should be on the flesh just below the nail. That is the spot I go for, and my teacher has never pulled me up on it. It doesn't feel to me like just scratching at the string because the string is pressed down first. It sounds to me as if you might be missing this part of the stroke.
