Blue Danube Waltz, B Section, Measures 20-24 are broken down and walked through. Hugh first teaches the right hand alone, then the left hand alone, followed by how to combine both hands. Notation is overlaid to help you follow along with the lines being taught.
- Again, bridging with what we just played,…leaving us off with the A and the F sharp,…we jump back to the D, we see we'll be jumping down…to that an awful lot in this piece, don't we?…Back to the D.…Same kind of a pattern going to a thumb D above it again,…so this should be familiar,…now we have some slightly different chords to play here.…Again, if you count the ledger lines,…this is a high D on top,…and the ledger line below that will be a B, okay?…Here, you could use a three if you wanted to,…but I think the four may be more comfortable.…
Experiment with it, see what you like better,…but I personally prefer a four here.…But whatever you'd like to use,…you can use a three if you want, if it's stronger for you.…Whatever you prefer, okay.…And then we're going to shift down so that…this B gets replaced with a pinkie here,…and then skip the ledger line, excuse me,…skip the space here to find this lower note here,…so it's a B and an E, again,…holding onto the thumb through that.…One more time.…
High D and B.…Holding your thumb and replacing that with a B and an E.…
