RH technique, only P and I

Post by tateharmann » Tue Jul 04, 2017 2:07 pm

I stumbled across this player on YT and was blown away by the unusual RH technique that he employs: he plays whole pieces with only the thumb and index! Here he is playing some Barrios.

I think there's a video of Parkening playing "Canarios" in pretty much that way. But to play that way all the time...*scratches head* :D
