C DOUBLINGS

This is the same as a Low ‘A’ Doubling except that the note being doubled in the middle is ‘C’!

Order of Events:

1.         Starting note - ‘F’ in example 16.
2.         Open High ‘G’ gracenote.
3.         Change to ‘C’.
4.         Close High ‘G’ gracenote.
5.         Double ‘C’ with a ‘D’ gracenote.
6.         End on ‘C’.

 When coming from High ‘G’ remember to use the Thumb Gracenote (example 17):

1.         High ‘G’.  
2.         Open thumb gracenote.  
3.         Change to ‘C’.  
4.         Close thumb gracenote.  
5.         Double  ‘C’ with a ‘D’ gracenote.  
6.         End on ‘C’.

This is different when coming from High ‘A’ (example 18):

1.         High ‘A’.
2.         Change to ‘C’.
3.         Double  ‘C’ with a ‘D’ gracenote.
4.         End on ‘C’.

Example 16 -  ‘C’ DOUBLING FROM ‘F.
