Greensleeves, B Section, Measure 26 through the end of the piece is 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.
- Now let's go on to the last section of this piece, okay?…It's almost the same as what we just played,…but the only difference is, of course, the ending.…So let's take a look.…(plays piano)…All right? Everything's the same up until that point.…Now, let's just take a look at where it changes. Ready?…So, you're going to end up with your four finger on a G.…(plays piano) All right?…F sharp.…Now, the next note is an E,…but instead of using that second finger--…remember that strategy of using your thumb as a pivot point?…We're going to put your thumb here.…
Okay? So one more time.…That's going to enable me to reach down…for some lower notes here, okay?…Next note is a D sharp.…C sharp.…And again, because we're still in the same measure,…the D sharp is implied, so we're going to play…the D sharp again.…Okay?…Now, you have the option of either returning to your thumb,…if you like, or…play the very next finger over here, four finger.…
Whatever's more comfortable for you.…Let's try it both ways, okay?…Ready?…Starting from this last ending…
