Ratamacue With '+' Count Accents

Developing accent placement in the ratamacue.

In this lesson you will be applying accents at various points in the bar, always on an '+' count using a right hand in standard sticking. Remember, an accented note is played slightly louder so it stands out from all the other notes. The symbol for an accent is the '<' sign above the note and accents are identified in the sticking with a capital letter. These movements will be similar to those used in a Single Stroke 4 but those grace notes have been added in.
