Harrison Gelber's Etude

This is part of the Open Source Dampening and Pedaling book. This is free for all to use. It's a beautiful etude.

When I heard you play the first measure, I knew I would dig the rest. Love it!


Hi Barry,

Thank you so much! I appreciate it and am glad you liked it! In this etude, I really think simple is better, and it turned out well.


I realized after rewatching Harrison's demo that I am not really dampening the double-stops correctly; I am using dead strokes. Also, I am playing too fast. I think if I slow it down I will be able to dampen the double-stops properly. I'll keep working on it.
