Notes: A little game to work on Scruggs Style speed (I think). I heard a classical guitarist talking about tremolo speed. Tremolo on a classical guitar involves playing a rapid succession of index (i) - middle (m) - ring (a). He pointed out that even though the combination of the notes is rapid each finger digit is only striking the string say twice a measure, or once a measure. My theory is that if you increase the tempo on the index only to get the timing right on and then switch to middle only and then thumb only and then start mixing combinations of thumb + index only, or thumb + middle only, or index + middle only, then when you finally do thumb, index, middle you "might" be able to play a little faster than before.
