I was curious about the reason for your question. So in a Sherlock Holmes moment . I looked further.... In a thread about one of your compositions there was a link to a jazz forum where you had posted it, played on an electric 7 string guitar (What a strange and hypnotic piece, I think a duende da floresta
was there at its birth.)
The guitar sounds fairly low tension? And I guess you prefer the gentle l sound you get on it with finger tips, rather than plectrum or fingernails.
Are you playing the classical pieces - Bach, Villa Lobos etc on this instrument. And if so, what right hand observations have you made? Any te chnical or expressive difficulties
For myself, I might have problems for right hand on most of the acoustic or electric I have played. Probably because the strings are usually close together. So V-L 1 could be a nightmare for my right hand
But your playing history experience is very different to mine
but I would like to receive some guidelines, etudes or simple pieces (bwv is not simple at all, I developed an alternative fingering,
So have a slight rest from Bach and discover a treasure trove of pieces.
