Bar 1:

Work on staying with that metronome but also getting clean crisp grace notes and strikes.

Bar 2:

Strikes clean and finish with a nice C Sound at the beginning of your C Half Doubling.

Phrase 1:

Lock in the G grace notes with your metronome here.

Phrase 2:

Bar 3 = Bar 1 so Let's try it with the 4th bar. Work no nice crisp accurate strikes.

Line 1:

Hone in on the steady click of your metronome.

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 line 1

Ending Phrase:

Here's a recycled bar 7 with a new but easy bar 8.

Line 2:

Zone in on the click and let your technique shine through.

Whole Part (1st Time):

Keep everything nice and steady.
