Hello,

I'm looking for a bit of help.

View attachment 35

Above the first D crotchet is the symbol for a turn, how exactly do you play a turn?

Above the second D crotchet is different symbol, unfortunately I can’t remember its name, but again how do you play it and what is it called?

All the best,

Chris

Hi Chris.

Yes she does, and yes she did tell me about the turn today but alas my memory is a little sketchy and I didn't jot it down. It went something like this though:

Up a semitone, down a tone and back up again all very quickly... I think... I can't really remember hence my plead for help.

All the best,

Chris

Hi Geoff,

That's great, thanks so much for scanning the page for me, all I need to do now is get my fingers to move a lot faster and not come across the symbol and think 'Umm... what is it I'm suposed to do again?'

Thanks again,

All the best,

Chris
