Try dropping the string tension a little, seems to work a little better for no nails. Seems counter intuitive but you might get a touch more volume.gilles T wrote:Hello,
I'm lucky to have very strong nails and yet I decided to play with the flesh few years ago, when I switched to the lute. I'm very happy to play this way now, mostly baroque and renaissance music.

I'd like to know how improve the attack... I'm electric guitarrist, and I have the following routine:
Villa-Lobos etude I
Brouwer's Etude VI
Own etudes I and II (I wrote my self)
Bach prelude Prelude (from Lute Suite No. 2, BWV 997)
I know this is and exclusively acoustic guitar focused forum, I accepted the rules... but I would like to receive some guidelines, etudes or simple pieces (bwv is not simple at all, I develope an alternative fingering, and I'm writing a Paper about it to present in a Guitar Symposium, here in Curitiba, Brazil.)
that could help me on right hand technique. Thank you All!
