Legato and Staccato

Legato and Staccato

Play a passage on the open strings to check all aspects of the right arm without the distraction of the notes.

To practise passages like this you may need to write out the names of the open strings. Or try drawing a bracket over groups of notes in your score and label each bracket with the string name.

This excerpt is from the Allegro of "Praeludium and Allegro" by Kreisler, Bars 53-56.
