doublings?

by jeffery craft

This is kinda complicated the way i ask this but, when playing a doubling lets say from low a to b, Does your finishing note have to be low a or can you go?


G grace, low a, d grace note low a, then g gracenote, b, d gracenote b?

I know this is kinda confusing but its the only way i can think to ask it.

doublings
by: Bill Robertson

Hello Jeffery,
Your question becomes confusing as it goes on, so I'll simply explain the doubling on B from low A that I think you meant firstly.

After sounding low A for about 2 seconds or so play high G grace note on B cleanly as a single sound on B, pause for a send or so then play the D grace note crisply still on B and hold. Repeat correcly many time, then quicken the doubling as you progress, yet still with a methodical approach in making sure the doubling has the xlear double sound. Quicken to as normally played although should still have a clear quck doubly sound. With nearly all doubling think essentially always of the first high G grace note clean execution on the main theme note, then the second sound methodically well seprateted often enough then worked up.

I trust that helps.

All the best,
Bill
