Speed Burst
1) Try to learn this study right-hand only. It’s worth the extra effort/
2) Mute the strings by placing a folded cloth under them near the bridge and play the study without pitches. Think of yourself as a percussionist and concentrate on rhythmic accuracy.
3) Watch thos quintuplets! Make sure you play them evenly and don’t rush.
