Day 4 of #infinitedaysofpractice with a run of the Eccles Sonata- Mvt. 2 under-tempo to check for consistent articulations (spiccato-ish eights and heavier sixteenths), a contrast in voicing between the interlocked high and low notes in the second phrase, and that I’m using the right fingerings when focused on phrasing over intonation. This recording made it clear that my trills are hilarious and that there’s a ways to go before I get all of that down, especially at performance tempo! #doublebass#baroque
“Dance with grace and modesty, neither affect to make a parade of your knowledge; refrain from great leaps and ridiculous jumps, which would attract the attention of all towards you.” - Richard A. Wells (1893)
