Greensleeves, A Section, Measures 1-4 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.
- So the first piece we're going to work on…is Green Sleeves.…This is a special arrangement that I made…to make it easy for you to sound good right off the bat.…Now don't be intimidated.…Yes, you're going to be playing with hands together,…but as you'll see, we're going to take this apart…a little bit at a time,…and even if you don't read a note of music,…I'm going to show you everything you need to know…to be able to play this piece comfortably…and with a lot of confidence.…So let me play this through for you one time…so you can hear what it sounds like,…and then we'll get to work pulling it apart.…Green Sleeves.…
(playing Green Sleeves)…All right, so let's get started.…
Let's take a look at the first line of music,…and you're just going to see, we're going to take a look…at just the notes in the treble clef.…Remember the G clef, our GF.…So as you can see, remember the mnemonic,…Ew Great Big Dog Fur,…it just so happens that the very first note…that we're going to be looking at…is the very first note in that first line.…
