So,
everybody wants to play fast, and I
understand that, so
what we're gonna do is, show you a couple
different techniques on developing speed.
For instance, if we're gonna do, C major
scale or.
[MUSIC]
C and C major scale and a half.
[MUSIC]
One way to practice it so
that you really become even in your
technique is to,
speed up two of the notes, for instance,
the first two notes,
[MUSIC]
And that trains those muscles.
[MUSIC]
And then you do the second two notes.
[MUSIC]
So, what that is doing is training
the fingers, to make those quick moves,
and when you put it all together,
[MUSIC]
but the important part is that you do,
take the time to do the two notes in
groups.
