Have come to realize that no matter how careful and sharp I try to finger-pick the guitar using my right hand (keeping the chord-shapes pressed with left hand to play Arpeggios or melody in general), at anything over say (roughly) 100bpm, the notes have hardly any sustain and almost instantaneous decay. This gives a very "muted" sound to the notes, instead of the distinctive acoustic guitar twang.
- Is the above observation a shortcoming of my technique and insufficiency of training (and of course experience) ?
- Are there some techniques to improve the clarity and ring of the notes in such cases ?
Please note that the style of finger-picking I've practised and learnt involves 50:50 combination of flesh and nail of the index, middle and ring fingers, instead of purely picked using nails.
