Hello and welcome to my video on how to play silent night on the violin. For those of you who have not seen the way I write music, it’s pretty unique. And it seems this is my first time it might be a little crazy to you. So if you can’t read this, I couldn’t explain it but otherwise just try to follow my fingers. I play the song. Basically, it’s just the note names. Dashes are beats, so this is like three beats for D two, three beats for this A two. Same beats high or low. And half is a dotted half or quarter note, and everything quotes is eight notes. And then slurs I think that’s about all the use and then repeat sign so parts are being repeated back to this.
So otherwise just watch my fingers. So first phrase is going to be a dotted quarter note open A. And then slur to a B. So it’s going to be 1 and 2. And then open A and then D two, go for three beats. 1, 2, 3. You know lift your bow and the same play again the repeat. And lift again and over here E for two beats. 1, 2, open E and then A two C sharp three beats. And then up bow three D third finger. All that for two beats and three beats for open A. 1, 2, 3. And over here B two beats. B, E three, and you’re going to do dotted quarter hook to an eighth note. B, A one, and then open A, dotted quarter to a B. And then D two for three beats. Just do that phrase with a B.
In the last part , that will be repeated twice. And then in the last part, it’s going to start with an open E. 1, 2, two beats open again, G natural, one and a half beats. Hook down to an open E, eighth note. And then C sharp, D. 1,2,3. F sharp three beats again. So just that press two. And then we’ll start off with A three, open A then D two F sharp. So this will be a dotted quarter note hooked down to a D three. Slur and then D one. And the last note with three beats D zero—two, three.
Okay, so let’s try it slowly starting from the beginning to the whole thing. There are also a couple other slurs that I did in there that you can kind of see what I did. If you want to do that that will work. So, ah I hope you learned how to play Silent Night. It may take a few times to practice it, but enjoy that and we’ll see you on another video.
