...the evenness of the tremolo is determined by the length of each note, which is determined by when the next finger touches the string. This becomes obvious when you play a tremolo on one string. I would look forward to a one string tremolo video.
All the best,
Here you go Larry!
I will be able to maintain this for longer periods without reverting back to the incorrect technique that I was taught (beginning in 1982) as I become more secure with applying my discovery, which presents the only correct way to use the right hand on the classical guitar.
All the great players are doing this, it's just that few if any realize it. At least they have not until now, as I have been sharing my discovery with them:
I tried so hard for 37 years to "keep the main thrust coming from the large knuckle"; all of my teachers taught this in one variation or another. It is100% false; the main knuckle joint desists at all times, as does the middle joint.
Again, I want to point out that I am very fond of all of my former teachers, most especially Bill Kanengiser at USC, who never ruled anything out and encouraged me (and all of his students) to search within to find the correct way.
None of my great former teachers can be blamed. I was so fortunate to be able to study with each of them, most especially Bill. They came to their brilliant technique naturally (at least with respect to what I'm talking about here).
There is a clear neurological illusion which led them to believe that they were activating their two larger joints when they were not/ are not.
No one can be blamed for this! Someone like me had to come along; someone who is obviously NOT a natural talent (
), but for various reasons was able to figure this out.
