Not illustrated. 1894 edition. Excerpt: ...propress. Suppose we try first to play without counting; that sounds queer; but I am prompted by the desire to make it as easy to you as possible. Look at Example No. 1..--, -5 No. 1. fe=g 12 3 4 1 2) 4 12 34 1234 Let ns call half notes slow and quarter-notes fast. Then we say to ourselves; let us stop after each slow note before we attempt to strike the following; but the moment we have struck a fast note let us rush to the following.

Be careful to call out your numbers (they are marked in the three examples in their respective places) short and distinct; do not drawl or even stng them.
