Hi everybody,
Aguado's Study No.17: original Aguado's right hand fingering: it's easy and fast.
I hope you'll like it,

Hi Josef. It is good that you are looking at Aguado's Method and original fingering for his studies. But where does he mention playing rest strokes? Your interpretation seems needlessly aggressive to me. However, I encourage people to explore different approaches, and many people will like what you do. But your implication is "this is how Aguado played it", which is unlikely. But please prove me wrong! I like to be enlightened. The only time I recall him talking about resting a finger on an adjacent string is when playing a string of two-note chords - diads - in thirds, moving through two strings as if they are one. It's a kind of rest stroke, but not of the type you are doing. Please note I do not mean to attack you - this is all in the spirit of enquiry. Best wishes, Rob.

Hi Rob,
That's a nice suggestion, I like it!
Indeed, it sounds a bit agressive with the rest stroke. I might change it, i will try. But my point was to let people focus on the fact, that after a legato you can use any of the fingers, even one which played before the legato. With this fingering, you get close to imim.., only you replace one m with the legato. In many modern editions, there is i-mi m-im, which is not necessary. And, I don't say Aguado played it with a rest stroke. Although, it always seems to me his style could have been influenced by a flamenco technique. Sor spoke about him in this manner, seems to me. But from your point, i can see you care about the sound a lot, and it is always good. Thanks for inspiration, Josef
