[For a four-note tremolo (3-treble-notes tremolo) 132 tempo seems to be the lowest end of it sounding connected.
I messed around a bit in Anytune and I think the threshold is nearer 120 - but it could be that my ear is more easily fooled than yours.

Hmm.. thank you for your reply.. exactly what I was thinking.. there would be a certain speed for the tremolo to make sense.. however we can play with the gaps between the bars (in Spanish romance for example)..

I tried looking for recuerdos in slow but couldn't find it anywhere..
Just going back to your original question, what about switching to a 6-note tremolo? That way - if you can get it even - you would be able to slow the tempo down quite a bit more before the tremolo effect was lost. It would change the feeling a bit, I'm sure, but it's not like messing with the duration of an ordinary note.
Tried both 6 and 5 note tremolo.. but they aren't sounding too good.. going back to practising the pami..
