Good Tone Twinkler

I have a new Twinkler who has very beautiful Tone… and here is her secret…
Each time before she begins, she does a complete round of:
“Tick Tock Land and Stop” *
“Teeter Totter to A”**
“Wait Wait Ready Go” ***
And then she starts!

*From Cathy Lee in San Francisco
** My own invention- natural balance string change
*** Ed Sprunger’s idea

It all really works!
