HIGH ‘A’ DOUBLING

Like High ‘G’ Doublings,  this is slightly different from the other Doublings.  From any note,  make High ‘A’ and double it with a strike.  From High ‘A’,  this is just a strike.  There are no tricks or secrets to this one!

 Order of Events:
1.         Note - ‘C’ in example 30.
2.         Change to High ‘A’ (lift thumb first).
3.         Double High ‘A’ with a strike (see above).
4.         End on High ‘A’.
Example 30 - HIGH ‘A’ DOUBLING FROM ‘C’.
