I play fingerstyle using rest strokes. I take advantage of raking whenever I can. That is, if I pluck the A string with the middle finger, the middle finger comes to a stop - or rest - on the E string. If I pluck the E string next, I'll again use the middle finger since it is already resting on the E. For consistency of tone, I generally like to pluck each string at a different distance from the bridge. I pluck the G string farthest from the bridge while plucking the E string closest to the bridge. When raking, therefore, after my plucking finger has come to rest on the lower string, I often quickly slide it toward the bridge before plucking the lower string. Anyone else employ such a "sliding rake" technique?
