Thank you. I am learning to bend the ima fingers at the middle joint, and not curl in the finger tips. I am not sure if I really accomplished that here.

The strokes look really good to me.. But, I'm a newbie.

When I pluck multiple strings it involves middle joint mostly but finger tips a little bit too. It's a pretty natural movement.. I think you might be overthinking it, but someone else will surely chime in!

i think probably you just aren't supposed to overdo the fingertip itself, surely you want the power to come from the finger and not just the tip, that would be funny!

But, again. I know nothing, so cheers! Looked and sounded good to me though!

Well, my teacher, Allen Matthews emphasizes moving the fingers from the middle joint, and somehow the knuckle also, I don't know, but not using the tip, keeping that relaxed. The same with the RH thumb, where the knuckle for that is back near the wrist, not using or bending the tip of the thumb. This I just learned tonight.
naturally, this is all new info for me, contravening years of ingrained habit, so I feel I have a real uphill battle to slow down and get this right.
