Here's a great little 2 Parted 2/4 March. Let's build it up.

How to use Tune Building Posts: Below, you'll see various 'practice pods' that loop automatically, so you can practice along and develop the tune properly. For the full story on the Tune Building Process, click here.

Bar 1:

Okay, this first bars kinda hard, but I promise it's easy after this! Work on fuzing that ASAP before the grip into the steps of the Grip.

Bar 2:

See Bar two is easy, work on getting that nice E Doubling.

Phrase 1:

Focus in on good ASAP treatment and staying perfectly on that metronome.

Bar 3:

Recycled Material: We've seen this material before, earlier in the tune! So, there's no need to learn this bit again (as long as you did a good job the first time around!)

It doesn't count as being hard, you've already played it!

Bar 4:

Just keep it all on the beat.

Phrase 2:

This one's going to be easy.

Line 1:

Get in a nice groove here with good technique

Phrase 3:

Recycled Material: We've seen this material before, earlier in the tune! So, there's no need to learn this bit again (as long as you did a good job the first time around!)

Same as Phrase 1 with one note different at the end of the bar.

Ending Phrase:

Bar 8 is easy so we'll play these two together. Play nice clean - on the (off) beat - taccums and make sure that D Throw and Strike start on the beat.

Line 2:

Let makes try these two together. Remember the High G in Bar 6.

Whole Part (1st Time):

Let's try the whole part - not that bad, eh?
