And not, you are going to play this, the first tune out together. Then when you say, deaf, you are going to play the next triplet then you are going to go (demo) and then you are going to say this or you are going to play this one, that bar at the last 8th note on the bottom and then “cult”
It goes with this, it is going to go, not difficult, not difficult (demo), like that, over and over.
Okay, so that works great well and then once you have gotten that, then to get it even more steady, then you turn on your metronome and you got to click in to them, every time you say not, it goes with the click so it sounds like, (demo-not difficult)
And then it will be nice and smooth. Okay, and also here, at little line kind of drum to show you like kind of had they come down, so it is like, this would be a triplets here and this is here 8th notch, it will be like (demo) or so, one two together and it is going to be at the top one here, right there, is that one, and then the second one and then third and then to make things even more some times, I do it draw this, of these two air coming down, the start, and then it goes up and then down and then up. So that is the thing when it is like together, up to here, down to here, down to there so, it is together, middle of the 3rd one then the end of the 2nd and then the end of down here.
That does not really sound very clear when I say it like this. I am having a hard time simplifying this. It is just (demo) and then just play the middle of triplet then play the end of the 2nd and the two together and then play the end with the triplet. So, the triplet, because there is 3 of them, each note is the shorter intro for alright, so, it is going to have to, their spacing are closer so that would actually sound like the last triplet will be played before or after this because this is not actually longer.
So these 3 are shortened up because they have to fit into one space. So, it is like a musical way of fitting everything into a one smaller area like when you are going to triplet mode, it is all it is like, let us say, you are going like (counting)
And then now, you have to check to that one beat that you are playing (counting) as three now, so it is (counting)
Okay, so that is 2 against 3, so remember, it is not difficult.
And now 4 against 3, same term, it is actually the same principle, it is just with ____
Things sort of, 2 notes at the bottom, bass 3, and there is 4 at the top. Although this could be switched round, the bass 4 at the bottom, 3 at the top and then you just do it in reverse order.
Okay, so it is going to be like, now all you are doing is you add in one word to those, two syllables, (demo-not very difficult)
Like that, let us sort of like this, (demo- not very difficult)
And then I just keep going on. So the main thing you have to remember here is that, at each, if you got 2 of these in a row, by the time you get to the next one of these like if there is another one here, you have to play these two together again so it is like, coming together, switching apart, coming together, switching apart.
Now another easier way to play this is just think that one. You play this note and it is just going to be one note, right hand, left hand, right hand, left hand, right hand, so it is just like there, alternating, switching between the two, sort of.
Okay, now, there is a quite a few pieces that actually I have this on them. Shop and uses them a lot in, maybe one or twice, it is my senior pieces. Except when you are planning to go on and look at more advanced pieces, this is something you might want to be around. So same thing here, also uses these one and I agreed.
I feel like almost half a page in the right hand, on the left hand that says, 2 against 3 the whole time. It goes like (demo), something like that and it sounds a little funky and cool so, yes, there is polyrhythm for you.
Now, I would demonstrate, well I, you can actually see a polyrhythm when you watch my WC video but, yes, become hard for me, hold the camera in the proper spot and then I will show you a polyrhythm at the same time. So you can just like at that video and the changes, wrote like a few notice near the end of that piece, the WC piece, it actually changes that polyrhythm, it goes to, it has the increment with the two and the right hand and then it has the triplets in the left hand so it actually switches it around and then switches back, because originally has the triplets in the right hand and the 8 notes on the left.
Still pretty hard. I am still sweating. Okay, well, I think you are going to try and figure how I can make more professional video for the next ones. Feel like I am getting kind like of sloppy and disorganize and I do not really know what I am doing.
But I have really found good idea to do a lots tomorrow, okay, anyway, thank you for watching, I hope this was interesting, because it probably would not be able to use, or practically use for quite a while. But, yes, if you can find the use for it that is cool. Okay, anyway, thank you for watching piano lesson number 20 and I will see you later.
