OPEN STRING STUDY.
EIGHTH NOTES AND ALTERNATING STROKES
In this little Study the eighth notes are to be taken with down and up strokes, alternating, each pair of eighths
requiring the same amount of time as a single quarter note. This exact division will be more easily accomplished if each
"one-and," "two-and," etc., is compared to a word with two syllables—as "ta-ble," "ta-ble," while the quarter notes
take up the whole beat, like the one-syllable word "chair."
Particular attention must also be paid to the manner of making the strokes, as previously explained.
