‘E’ GRACENOTES

These are the same theory as ‘G’ gracenotes.  Instead of using your High ‘G’ finger,  you use your ‘E’ finger.  The “Order of Events” is as follows:

 1.         Starting note - ‘B’ in example 4.  

2.         Lift ‘E’ finger (gracenote).

3.         Change to next note - ‘C’ in example 4.

4.         Put down ‘E’ finger (gracenote).

As you can imagine,  it is only possible to start and  end on a note lower than ‘E’ when using this gracenote.

Example 4 - ‘E’ GRACENOTE FROM  ‘B’ TO ‘C’.
