Which doubling are you having trouble with? And do you have a teacher?

I'm asking this because many beginners (especially but not exclusively those who are self-taught) tend to play every grace note as a "true" note, whether as a single grace note or in a doubling. In some cases this is correct (for example, the G grace notes going from an E to an F with a double F), in other cases this is incorrect (for example, going from a C to a double B). In general grace notes are made by moving only the single finger for the grace note (for example, a G grace note from B to B lifts only the one G finger), plus any other fingers required for the note change if any. In other words you always move minimal number of fingers.
