Exercise for Stopping the Tremolo
The same principle is followed in this as in previous Examples, the tremolo being stopped with the up
stroke and exactly on the beat preceding- the single stroke.
The reason for not ending the tremolo on the quarter note beginning the second measure, for ex-
ample, with a down stroke, is that this note must not be accented, since as an individual note it does not
exist, it being but the fifth beat of a whole note, in this case and very unimportant rhythmically.
Ninon (neen-yon)
This little duet for mandolin and guitar will be found very effective, but in the absence of a gui-
tar, the accompaniment can be played on the mandolin. It is to be played rather quickly although
not like a March.
