Thanks man, I just noticed your post, lol, I don't check this thread very often, so sorry for replying so late :)

Yes, Bo's advice are always better than mine, haha...

Both, I wanted to replicate what you do with your hands, so I adjusted both the settings and the technique, I went through a lot of trial and error, analyzing the movement needed to get the desired effect and correcting both the physical aspect, the setting and the tuning, I did get there eventually as I was convinced it was the way to go about it, from the moment I decided to swap my approach, I never looked back.
