so i've tried both ways, with my hand completely free (raphael fays style) of the top and my fingers brushing lightly on the top.
I just can't seem to play with my fingers contacting the top. the main problem is that when playing, my fingers are sort of hooked to the high strings (which is supposed to be by watching fapy videos) but this causes a very unnatural tension in the fingers and i can't relax this way.
i feel like i could progress much faster if i could play this way. or should i just forget it and play it raphael style?
