# Round 4 with Paganini Double Harmonics I’ve mostly let the passage alone for a few days to let it sink in. Since my last session, I’ve just played the passage at tempo a few times to get a sense of what my hands should feel like shifting quickly. But now I’m back to it. Some of the practice strategies I’ve used: - Alternating between notes with lots of repetition - Dropping my hand and placing it where it is supposed to be – this helps with finding notes cold - Playing at tempo __even when out of tune__ – this helps with getting the feeling of connecting positions - Playing open strings with the speed and pressure I should use for harmonics - Playing at tempo but repeating each note 8 times – my goal was to do 8 times for each note, then 4, then 2, then as written, but I could feel myself losing my concentration so I moved on Specific things I want to improve: - The E and G# in the second measure and anytime it reoccurs - The first double stop in the sixth measure. My idea is to position my finger in between the strings so that my hand can make minimal movement to the E and G# - The D and F# in the tenth measure Obviously there is a lot more to work on, but it’s important to have concrete things to fix. There are a few playthroughs of the first 12 measures around 26:45. Still a ways to go, but I’ve made a lot of good progress since when I started the passage. ![](https://youtu.be/9tqBuKu4280)
