Sextuplet Single Strokes | Cellular Practice Method


If you missed our introductory post for this practice concept, be sure to read through it here. This practice method is designed to develop the ability to move between any two ideas at will. By incorporating on two ideas at a time, one can speed up the information intake and, as a result, see faster progress. The method behind it is very straight forward and simple; One “Cell” is labelled “A” and the other is labelled “B”. Start by practicing all A cells and systematically replace them with B cells.

The sequence is the following: AAAA, AAAB, ABAB, AABB, ABBB, BBBB, BBBA, BBAA, BABA, BAAA.

It’s a good idea to repeat each part of the sequence as needed before moving on to the next. SYNKD’s proprietary ‘Bar Isolation” function comes in handy here.
