Noise and sound inconsistence in this last video. Just doing the devil's advocate...

Here's Jorge Caballero using this technique. Forward to the last 1/3 of the interview

An eyewitness will often only see what he already believes to be true.

Interesting that Caballero both hints at how hard that is ("oh, this took me 20 years!"), but also somehow makes it seem easier as well - he was playing the Dvorak at 17 after all!
The Yamashita videos, grainy as they are, seem to show a completely different angle and position for the right hand to what Caballero has figured out.

(interestingly, in the Yamashita, his notation for the mandolin/dedillo appears to start with a downstroke ie one-string rasgueado, but it seems more likely if you're playing with the thumb too that you'd pluck on the beat. Never mind, it's still way beyond my hands though!)
