We can look at many concert players and verify that some are relaxing the tip joint for free strokes, but still others are not doing that. Relaxing the tip joint is something that is an optional variable, and if it's not allowed to passively bend backwards, then it really can't contribute 100% to releasing the string. Even in players who are relaxing the tip joints, we can see a lot of middle joint follow through. This is the evidence that the middle joint (and tip) flexion are releasing the string. Again, Ortega, I congratulate you on your progress from having focal dystonia and not being able to play at all, to being able to play at an intermediate level, but seriously, your level of playing is very far from concert guitarist, so your personal observations don't have the same credibility as watching what master players are actually doing. This thread is about observing what concert guitarists are actually doing, not what amateur and intermediate level forum members are doing.
