Tremolo and Picado 

Hola,

I was practicing tremolo the other day, and I watched Grisha's Oracion rendition. That got me thinking: what right hand finger pattern is he using? Is it iami-iami-iami-etc or ami-ami-ami-etc or just im-im-im-etc? It is not working for me when I try to fit more than three or four notes between every bass note (played rest stroke via pulgar). What's the secret?

Secondly, I was practicing picado (which I play with my fingers bent at the second knuckle, i.e. PdL-style), and I noticed that when I try going fast, my fingers keep straightening out at the second knuckle, making them more like Grisha's fingers when he plays picado (i.e. mainly using the first knuckle for movement). Is that supposed to happen? or will more very slow practice eventually allow me to later be able to go fast while maintaining that 90-degree angle at the second knuckle?

RE: Tremolo and Picado (in reply to rombsix

Hi
I don t know what Grisha does, but when I intend the seminar of Manolo Sanlucar he spoke about his tremolo in oracion. The idea is to play bass when the melody needs it and avoiding a simple pattern as piami...So he plays p and then amiamiami until he plays a bass...Of course you can play iami at the begining but then just amiamiami...
I hope it's clear.
saludos

RE: Tremolo and Picado (in reply to rombsix

Hi
Well I don't know if my answers have some value, so few reactions...Ok, maybe I am paranoiac and maybe it would be different if I had posted something I play...I made a joke on a different thread and somebody thought I was taking drugs...
Anyway, what can I add about picado is that you have to thing that runing is not walking fast..When you run you move differently your legs. For picado, I think that somehow it is the same, when you play fast, your mouvements are not the same. And the picado you play when you mix arpegio and picado is not the same that when you play a long picado run. Now that does not answer your question exactly but you may consider the question differently.
Good luck

Thanks duende121! Your posts do not go unaccounted for, surely. I will be sure to try your advice on the Sanlucar tremolo and the new way of thinking of picado. Gracias.
