just working on myself playing my instrument

Morning reading: Alcantara’s Indirect Procedures – Conclusion


2-mallets/Rip Tide

Warmup/Improv/Technique – within range of Rip Tide, played around with singles and double stop 8s, dynamic contrast, static and moving lines… pushing tempo, integrating cymbals, etc.,

Mm. 94-118 – read thru both hands separately BUT playing with both hands when reading (different perspective); then played through both hands separately, as written, RH=170-180bpm (hands only), LH=160-170bpm (with and without metronome… was able to retain good use at these tempos hands separate for quite a while. When bad use creeped in, I slowed down to 120-130bpm, alternating hands separate and hands together.
