Sad Mickey and slide technique



Here's a common slide technique problem...reaching out towards 6th or 7th but never really reaching the position before you turn around and come back.

Sometimes I compare this to taking a trip in your car. I live in Columbia, South Carolina so, for us, Disney World is only about a 7 1/2 hour drive. We've taken the kids many times.

Imagine we're driving along in the car on that first magical trip to Disney and along about Jacksonville, I stop and announce, "OK, kids we're here!" Then I turn around and head home.
(nothing against Jacksonville, of course)

'Twould not be a happy time in that car.

So, whenever you turn around before truly experiencing the "Disney Magic" of 6th or 7th position, think of the kids.

Don't break their little hearts.

You could try starting at Disney World, then driving to Orlando, then back to Disney World, then to Ocala, then back to Disney World, then to Jacksonville, then back to Disney World, then to Columbia, then back to Disney World, then to Jacksonville, then back to Disney World, then to Ocala, then back to Disney World, then to Jacksonville, then to Orlando, then back to Disney World.

In other words, in the key of B, do B, C#, B, D#, B, E, B, D#, B, C#, B and repeat until out of breath. Listening to the tuning of the scale, 7th MUST find the right spot.

Clever thought. Let's hope you're not driving an SUV!
