This is the same principle as the other Doublings. The first gracenote is still High ‘G’ but this time the note in the middle and at the end is a ‘D’. ‘D’ is doubled by cutting it into two with an ‘E’ gracenote.
Order of Events:
When coming from High ‘G’ remember to use the Thumb Gracenote (example 20):1. Starting note - ‘E’ in example 19.
This is different when coming from High ‘A’ (example 21):1. High ‘G’.
Example 19 - ‘D’ DOUBLING FROM ‘E’.1. High ‘A’.
Example 20 - ‘D’ DOUBLING FROM HIGH ‘G’.
Example 21 - ‘D’ DOUBLING FROM HIGH ‘A’.
Examples 19, 20 & 21
