Hello forum members,
I remember to have started a thread like this one, but i did not get really helpful answers.
Yesterday by hearing old (original) recordings of A. Barrios, i noticed in the 3rd Movement of la catedral, that he plays some parts some kind of pizzicato / stopping the strings , afaik it sounds as if he is planting the finger from the right hand on the strings to get good gontact and speed.
Some runs or melody lines sound as if played by a flamenco guitarist in rest stroke style and planting the next right hand finger already on the string, thus stopping the string from vibrating.
This lead me to the thought that he was playing maybe with very short nails or no nails at all, otherwise he would not be able to use this excessive "planting" of the fingers.
Is someone here in this forum having some knowledge about this topic ? - Besides the story of dampened steel strings-
