Cheers Dejan biggrin.gif

Some question for you here..

1: Tell me your right hand teqnuice, do you use all your fingers. How do they work, do they "live" on each string ? For example pinky on E,Index on G ?
2. What is the best advantage, using three fingers, four or five ?
3.Hows is it best to hold the hand position ( maybe a picture ? )

Would be a lot of help for me Dejan!

Hey Ramblingman smile.gif

I'll do my best to answer the questions

1. My right hand technique depends on a piece that I play, some general rules are that the thumb is playing bass strings (E, A, D) and other three fingers play treble strings (index = G, middle = B, ring = E), good example for this can be Evening Bells
Sometimes I play with thumb even on treble strings: Malaguena
And when I play a solo line, I use alternate picking (index, middle)

There are two main right hand picking techniques: TIRANDO (free stroke) and APOYANDO (rest stroke)

TIRANDO, finger plays a string and do not touch any other string (remains in the air), this is for playing chords, arpeggios and melody lines that are not emphasized

APOYANDO, after note is played the finger rests on the neighboring string, this is used for emphasizing melody lines

2. It depends on the piece as well, if you play 4 string arpeggios than of course you need 4 fingers for that: Etude in E Minor, for three strings arpeggios I use three fingers: Etude in A Minor.
Regarding right hand pinky, there were some attempts to utilize it in the past, but they all failed and the pinky is very rarely used, I don't use it at all since it's shorter and weaker, and I can do all I want with other fingers smile.gif


3. Here are some illustrations I found on the net that may help you smile.gif

This is a correct posture of a classical guitarist, guitar is firmly in place when placed on the rised left leg, so both hands are free to move

This is right hand from above, notice that thumb and other fingers do not disturb each other

And this is a front view of right hand

Hope this helps a bit, I am glad you are interested in this subject, let me know if you need any other help smile.gif
