Having Technical Trouble?

Having Technical Trouble?

  1. Play backwards ULTRA slowly any passage causing you trouble.

  2. Try different Rhythms than written.

  3. Slur if tongued – Tongues if slurred

  4. Do the passage in triplets

  5. Try grouping in various examples. Duple, syncopated etc.

  6. Fine some coins, preferably pennies or lowest common currency you have ( us Canadians have lost our precious penny ) Put 7 on your stand. Practice your passage, after each successful attempt move a penny over to the other side until you get all of them on one side. If you fail once anytime during the exercise you must put all the pennies back. 🙁
