Part of the University of Toronto audition is learning the head to Groovin' High and playing that tune (head, walking, solo) through with a rhythm section. I'm slowly working parts of this up to tempo and while it's manageable for the most part, there's ONE trill-esque thing that's giving m e trouble. This being the Bb-C-Bb-A, Bb-G where the first four notes are sixteenths, the last two are the "ba-da" eighth note motif that's present throughout the tune. The sixteenth note grouping is at the end of bar 16. I don't understand WHY I'm having so much trouble playing this part -- the notes are not that far apart, but it's giving me a lot of trouble. Are there any specific ways to finger this that work better? Right now (on the G string) I'm doing 1-4-2-1. Should I bring it up to the D string and play it 2-4-2-1? How do you guys play this? Basically, the problem is getting it clear and at tempo. I'm using Obligatos (...shouldn't these make it really easy to play this?) at a medium string height. EDIT: Now that discussion of the original topic is no longer necessary because I can play this...what're your favourite bebop heads to learn on DB? Working on any now?
