I am trying to play Romance de Amor, sometimes attributed to Vincente Gomez.
I have heard someone recommend using apoyando (rest stroke) for playing the melody (on first string) - since the beginning is very easy, it's a good piece to practice apoyando.
My question is - which fingering would be best for that? I have only used apoyando with the thumb ('p' finger), so anything else seems equally alien to me.
Just to show what I am talking about, I tried the following:
- pami - could be convenient, because it uses the "traditional assignment" of each finger to its string (i=3, m=2, a=3)
- paai or paam - after doing the apoyando, the ring finger lands on the second string; might as well use it while it's there
- pmmi - the same, but not using the ring finger
I have looked at various performances on youtube, and they invariably use the pami fingering, but, as far as I can tell, they don't use apoyando.
