I started to learn the tremolo technique (the p-a-m-i-variant) from classical guitar, and for example used in the famous Recuerdos de la Alhambra piece by F. Tarrega, a month ago. As far as good, but I do one exercise where my thumb goes from the lowest E to the highest e while tremolo picking on the the high e string. But every time I came to the high e, and start to use all my fingers one this one string, I came out of rhythm. As soon as my thumb and my fingers are on different strings its quite fine, but the difficulties came when I play everything on one string.
I tried to vary the hand position, came in from a 90 degree angle with my fingers and to hit the string with my thumb so that it does not interfere with my other fingers. But I does not work out quite well. So, do you have any advice what I could try out, and maybe an idea why it is more difficult on a single string?
