One question might be whether the player is using nails or not, given the general understanding that Tarrega had no nails in his last several years. I wonder whether it would be possible to analyse typical long/short/no nail attack in an audio sequencer to see if there is a characteristic signature, and see if that is illustrated in this recording.
Also, is it recorded on a wax cylinder, and if so did that have a limited period of use?
