I tried to give you in that, in that,
impromptu performance,
four different ways to play measures one
through four, which repeat four,
four different times, before you go on to
the A major section.
Not to suggest four different ways to play
in the same piece, you know, in the same
performance, not necessarily to suggest
you would vary it up each time, but
just to give you four different options to
find what's most comfortable for you.
Free stroke.
I believe the one I started out with was
free stroke with thumb.
Then on the repeat,
I played rest stroke thumb.
Then coming back around,
which would be measure seventeen,
I did rest stroke with i, n, m and I,
I've absolutely welcome this as an option.
Starting with M preferably.
And then free stroke on that repeat of
that in the performance you'll find that
doing it with a free stroke i-m
So, again I think all of those are,
all of those are viable options depending
on what feels comfortable for you.
If, the thumb is, is, it's difficult to
play the dotted rhythm because
there's a fast note there and you don't
wanna play it with two thumbs in a row.
You can, on measure three, you can play
thumb [SOUND] with a C, [SOUND]
with a thumb, [SOUND] and then just throw
an i in there on the B, on the B.
Like that.
P, I, P.
P, I, P.
P, I, P.
P, I, P.
And that may help you facilitate
the fast dotted rhythm if you're playing
with the thumb.
So, there you go.
And the second section in A major is
More shifting with double stops.
And that's number 23.
