For some reason, No. 17 was particularly difficult for me, but I eventually got it recorded.
Actually, I know exactly why this one was challenging – it emphasizes the area in and around my “break,” and I’m betting this is a range many other players struggle with also. One thing that helped me is practicing it very slowly, as well as using the provided rhythmic variations. Even with this preparation, however, I still found myself flubbing an attack or clipping a harmonic every now and then. This rendition isn’t perfect, but it was the closest I could get on that particular day. No. 17 is definitely one to come back to for work on the middle register! Suggested tempo is dotted quarter=92-100.
