A query from a lesson in Poulton's tutor book

Post by MichaelM » Sun Aug 26, 2018 11:07 pm

Hope this is this right place to post this. Apologies if it isn't.

An early lesson on stopping a string with a finger but I'm slightly confused as what Poulton means and intends for me to do in that paragraph regarding bars 1 and 2 because my third finger is already holding course 6 through until bar 2 when I play course 4. I just assumed I had to release the pressure on course 6 immediately before course 4 is played with second finger.

I can't understand why or how course 6 is being stopped in bar 1 too.

Any pointers will be appreciated.

I've finally realized what is meant by 'stop' in the above instruction. What a moron I am. Solved anyway.

Return to “Lutes, Baroque and Renaissance Guitars, etc.”
