Study-Practice Notes…

  • Never throw your hands at the keys. Use a prepared attack and let gravity do the work by dropping the weight of your arms/hands/fingers into each chord with just enough support to keep your hands and fingers from collapsing.
  • On the repeated notes, it’s okay to release the first set “early” in order to prepare to play the second.
  • No flams between the left and right hands!
