I've noticed that with many players I listen to on CD their 5th-string notes (and sometimes 1st string notes) are not as prominent (loud) as mine sound to me when I play. (FWIW, I recall that your playing features more-or-less even-handed volume and timing for all strings).
Is it because:
- it's a finesse/choice thing, and these people have so much control that they are proactively playing the 5th string softer (or the other notes harder)?
- Or, maybe they use lighter gauge on these strings or some other set-up trick to make the 5th string quieter?
