Adding in those grace notesPosted: March 25, 2011
Who knew that one little not-even-counted note could cause so much trouble? Remember the grace note from before?
It’s supposed to be played so fast that it doesn’t even figure in the count of each measure. For instance, see where it says 2 4 on the left next to the treble clef? That means each measure has the equivalent of 2 quarter notes. Looking at the above measure, there are 8 1/16th notes and that little grace note, which means that grace note just sort of slides in there. My last post had me playing the first four measures of variation 2 without the pesky grace notes. Here’s me playing with (out of about 25 takes, this was the best one):
