Blue Danube Waltz, A Section, Measures 8-12 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.
- Okay, just like before, we're gonna take…the last set of notes that we just finished with…on the right hand, that G and the C sharp,…played with a five and a two, okay?…Now the next note is gonna take us to a C,…which is the leisure line note below E.…And that has a sharp next to it,…so we're gonna play C sharp.…And it repeats, and the first line note over here, you,…you great big, that's gonna be a B up here,…and I'll switch this pinkie with a one.…Same idea that's happening that we did previously,…it's gonna be an octave higher to this next note.…
This is a high B, and the space note below that is a G.…All right?…Now you can either use a five four or,…if you're not comfortable with that space…between those two fingers, those two weak fingers,…you could try seeing how this feels, a five three instead.…Your third finger's a lot stronger than your fourth.…Experiment with it.…If you like this better, great.…If you prefer a three, that option is certainly…something you could use instead.…
Again, fingering, the whole point of fingering…
