Earlier this week I posted PATV #100, which featured a discussion (and video from a GoPro camera mounted on my forehead) about Bach four mallet stickings as they relate to articulation. The video below is a full run through of the entire 3/8 section so you can see the concepts as they permeate the entire movement. Later this week I’m going to sit and do more careful study of my head movement as I play. Lots to learn there! As always, I welcome your thoughts and feedback about the concepts presented. Please leave them below the post.
