Who said Pujol preferred rest strokes for tremolo?

One of our former Delcamp members, Alan aka Tarbaby, who has sadly since passed away:
Indeed. I attended Emilio Pujol's master classes (the last surviving pupil of Tarrega) in 1975. Guess what? He was espousing using apoyando for tremolo! :shock:

That was beyond me, but he played without nails. Maybe that makes it easier?

Well, Kacper just says, "It is said that..." Which is not conclusive.

Sorry to hear about Alan Tarbaby...I missed the news. So, he heard Pujol mention rest strokes for tremolo. Interesting. It never dawned on me to even try that. But I will tonight!

Yea try it! It's super hard hahaha...at least it has proven very difficult for me :

Here's a bit more from Alan:
He suggested that tremolo be played apoyando (the fingers, not the thumb :wink: ) whenever possible, switching to tirando when the accompaniment notes were on an adjacent string. He was a proponent of the no-nails method, so I imagine it's a bit easier to do that than it would be with nails.
Another influence can be your own history with the piece. During my 25 year marriage, my ex heard lots of renditions of "Recuerdos de la Alhambra". But, no matter who she heard play it, she always said that mine was better. Not so much technically, (my tremolo leaves much to be desired) but the depth of expression and longing. I get that almost everytime, but not because I'm thinking about the Alhambra. When I play it, I think about the time I played it in my early 20's, sitting on a bench in Cervera, Spain during a two week Master Class with Emilio Pujol.

It was the most romantic summer of my life and that was one of the high points! (Sigh)

Pujol had some funny ideas about rest strokes, at the first opportunity I'll look up a certain weird exercise from the method that I remember in relation to this (though not tremolo) and upload some material, maybe a few sample bars in score or recording (within the 'works in progress' allowance).
