I just dove into this lesson last night working on pages 6 and 7. Was a little challenging to do some of the techniques to tempo, like damping, alternating i and m, and rest strokes in general. I think I may have developed a few bad habits as far as posture and fingering goes (I tried to play one of the songs I'd learned using alternating i and m after practicing the exercises a bit and it was like learning the song all over again!).
Please try and stick to the I M alternation. It is a classical guitar technique that pretty much everyone will say needs to be adhered to. You won't have professionals, teachers, or more experienced players suggesting you use the raking technique rather than finger alternation.
Best to establish good habits and technique from the beginning if you have a long term view of the classical guitar.
