I am just teaching myself classical guitar (I play most Brasilian bossa nova) and I have a question about right hand technique…
I usually play ‘plucking’ the D – G – B (and sometimes E) strings with my fingers, and play the bass line on the E & A strings with just my thumb
I am learning Bach’s Suite #1 in G Major, which (in my version) plays mostly on the E – A – D – G strings, so my question is:
Should I keep my thumb on the E & A strings, and try and just play D string with the 1st finger, and G string with the 2nd finger (as I would do in bossa nova) or is it better to ‘mix-it-up’ a bit and alternate strings/fingers etc. when playing classical pieces?
