Great, Tim. Do my eyes deceive me? Are you using a mixture of down and up strokes with the index finger? Is this notated in Buckley, or is it your own interpretation? I imagine there was indeed a period of crossover between the two techniques. And what a great piece!

Of course, you must also source a pair of period spectacles...

Sharp eye Rob. There are little to no fingerings in much of Buckley's material. It just felt comfortable to do that in those inner voices. If it doesn't sound too incongruous, I mix styles as needed.
Got the glasses (lol), they just don't have bifocals (I was reading). I put a copy of the tune up in "photos" and circled that phrase.

Seems a good thing to me and sounds great. I'm about to add a comment to the photo page...
