welcome

1-4 (quarters -> eighths): over O.G.

actual patterns
- review: copycat chunk 1, line-by-line, then whole thing
-- 1
--- emphasize L
--- reveal slow vs fast strikes
-- 2
--- emphasize last L
--- "individualize" strikes in last R L
-- 3
-- 4

generalizing quarters, eighths
- quarter-note timing: what it means to not hit early (SI focus)
-- hitting just after the click
-- taking turns
- 1eau Drill
- future
-- each line once?
-- in reverse?
- future
-- what it means to not "loiter" (AS focus)
-- what is perfect wrist position (DH focus)
-- how much elbow bend is enough (KN focus)

improvised quarter -> eighth development
- improvising lines 1,2; lines 3,4 as-is
- remember to imagine ahead and be patient

choreo break: slow spins
- with music

next actual patterns
- line 5
-- [l5a] su dogo su go don (upbeat feel)
-- [l5b] dogon gon su dogon gon (downbeat feel)
- future
- line 6
-- [l6a] su dogon godon dogodogodon
-- [l6b] dogodogo don gon don gon don gon
- everything thus far: lines 1-6

generalizing l5a: changing gap between hits 3,4
generalizing l5b: same

future
- moving first pair of hits to "1"

future:
generalizing eighths
- pairs of hits
- just L (upbeats)
- slight crescendo
- leading to 1
