Faith 1 Study

Faith’s first study

I’m aiming for several aspects here. The main one is to really impress your personality on important notes, such as the first one. Work on diaphragm breathing so that you can make inflections. This is especially true of the middle section, and you’ll need some gentle, controlled vibrato on the long notes to make them come to life. The other aspect is to have an easy flow to the fingers in the faster notes. There should be a flexing of values rather than computer-like semiquavers.

Have a look at the Mini Studies in Emin for some little finger workouts. Also your Emin scale, melodic and harmonic plus the arpeggio.
