We look at a few embellishments requested by our class members, and analyze how to slow them down and build them in a fundamentally sound manner from the ground up. Then we look briefly at Susan McLeod, part 1, bar 2, and break down what is likely the most difficult passage of the tune to attain maximum embellishment cleanliness, rhythm, and accuracy.
