Introducing E for Left Hand

 

Pic.a

 

A New Position of the C Major Chord left Hand

 

You have used C Major Chord with C as the lowest note like  CEG.  When you play these same 3 notes in any order, you will still have a C Major Chord. When you play in G Position, it is convenient to play G as the lowest note as GCE. It is easy to move from G Major Chord to the C Major Chord, when G is the lowest note of both chords. 

 

New Position of C Major Chord    

 

You have already played the C MAJOR CHORD with C as the lowest note: C E G.  When you play these same three notes in any order, you still have a C MAJOR CHORD.  When you are playing in G POSITION, it is most convenient to play G as the lowest note:  GCE.

 

The following diagrams show how easy it is to move from the G MAJOR CHORD to the  C MAJOR CHORD, when G is the lowest note of both chords.

Don't be confused, GCE  which is C major chord is actually CEG. We are actually limited to play chord in the keys C D E F G A as mentioned in Pic.a above.  Same sound will be heard whether we play CEG or GCE. Otherwise we have to play chord CEG  in other octave.

Practice changing from G chord to C chord and back again.

    1.    Finger 5 plays G in both chords.

    2.    Finger 2 plays C in the C chord.

    3.    Only finger 1 moves out of G POSITION (up to E) for the C chord.

 

 

 


Introducing E for Right Hand

Pic.b

 

Place the Right Hand in G Position. Leave finger 1 on G. Shift all other fingers LEAVING one white key to the right.

Don't be confused, GCE  which is C major chord is actually CEG. We are actually limited to play chord in the keys C D E F G A as mentioned in Pic.b above.  Same sound will be heard whether we play CEG or GCE. Otherwise we have to play chord CEG  in other octave.

Practice changing from the G chord to the C chord and back again:

    1.    Finger 1 plays G in both chords.

    2.    Finger 3 moves up to C and 5 moves up to E for the C chord.

WARM-UP USING C,G7 & F CHORDS USING  BOTH HANDS

 

 

 

 


Practice the following four exercises daily unless you learn finger position.

 Melodic Intervals

 

Distance between tones are measured in INTERVALS, called 2nds, 3rds, 4ths, 5ths, etc. Notes played separately make a melody.  We call the intervals between these notes Melodic Intervals.  Play these MELODIC 2nds & 3rds. Listen to the sound of each interval.


Play both hands same time in upper & lower  bar measures. Upper bar measure notes are for right hand and lower bar measures are for left hand here.  Where CD 2nd CE 3rd interval and GF 2nd GE 3rd interval. This exercise is only for practice to play whole songs and rhymes. You will recognize my notation system in this practice.

Harmonic Intervals

 

Notes played together make harmony.  We call the intervals between these notes HARMONIC INTERVALS. Play these harmonic 2nds & 3rds. Listen to the sound of each interval and recognize sound. Use both hands here.

 

Play two notes together:

Notes 4/4  RH    | CD   CE   | CD   CE  |   -  |   -  :|

                                         mf (play FG in measure 3 moderately loud)

The Sign  -  between  measures means complete silence. Do not play any note.
