Watch for those ugly C - E crossing noises.

Phrase 2:

Again, no crossing noises, there could be many!

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

Bar 7:

Fun little bar, make sure the grace notes are correct.

Bar 8:

Don't rush to the D Throw, wait for the beat.

Ending Phrase:

Watch for any Grace Note Sync and Crossing Noises.

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