Blue Danube Waltz, A Section, Measures 12-16 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, starting from where we just left off,…the G and the C sharp, OK,…we're gonna jump to, again, it almost sounds the same here,…we're gonna jump back down to that C sharp here…in this next section,…and again, replace it with a thumb.…All right, now we have a whole new chord we're gonna play.…Again, holding your thumb down,…the very next note, the next line up,…is gonna be D, the next line is gonna be an F,…and notice there's a sharp next to it,…we're gonna change that to an F sharp.…
The next, we're running out of staff lines,…so the next ledger line would be here,…but we can see that the note is above that ledger line,…so that's actually gonna be a B.…OK, so all together, sounds like this, OK?…Starting from here,…we can see that this is a B minor chord,…we're just adding the B on top of it to make it much richer,…just like we did with the left hand a little while ago,…see that?…And then we're gonna take off the top note…and just play the bottom two of that chord on top.…
OK, let's do the whole thing again.…
