- Now, let's move on to the B section,…the next middle section of this song.…Now, see if you can identify which note this is, okay?…Remember, that mnemonic,…Ew Great Big Dog,…this going to be the D over here,…Ew Great Big Dog, okay?…So our next section is gonna start on D over here.…Now I want you to start with the fourth finger,…on this D, okay?…So let me play through the first few notes.…
And hold that, play it again.…And then the fast, notice the C sharp.…Okay, and you go to this A.…Put your hand over, okay, again we're gonna be reaching,…we've run out of fingers, but fortunately that thumb…is a great pivot point.…Reach over with the third finger to this F sharp.…And then you're gonna bring that thumb back out to the D.…Let's just do that much again,…that little thumb maneuver's a little tricky.…
Okay, ready?…Fourth finger on the D.…Hand over, third finger reaching over to the F sharp.…Switch that thumb back out.…Right, and try to see if you can hold each finger…until the next finger plays before letting go.…Okay, good, let's try that one more time…
