Part three of an in depth walkthrough of how to play the Minute Waltz. Hugh takes you through the measures showing you the lines for both the left and right hands and how to combine them. This piece has very fast fingerings and Hugh will guide you as you work on developing your speed.
- Alright, if you recall, the measure 20,…we've just finished playing this…A flat major chord.…Okay, now we're gonna be moving up…a little sequence of chord progressions here, okay?…So after the A flat, your fifth finger…needs to move to a new position A natural,…okay and then you have these two notes,…F and E flat.…And I want you to climb up with your pinkie.…So the F stays the same,…and we're just kind of moving up…the pinkie and changing the chord there,…but with keeping the thumb in the same place.…
(playing piano chords)…Okay, now you'll notice we're gonna insert…the G clef for the left hand,…'cause the notes are getting higher and higher.…It's just easier to write it that way.…So don't let that throw you now,…because after that B flat, we're just moving up…to a C, and then the A flat here.…Okay, and then you can use your third finger…and just move the second finger over…to complete that.…Let's do that sequence one more time.…Left hand, A natural.…(playing piano chords)…Move the pinkie.…Move to the C with the fourth finger,…
