Now, let us teach what sharps are. Now, a sharp is a symbol in this music that tells you to raise the tone by a half step. For instance, if it is an A sharp, instead of playing A, you will play A sharp. A, A sharp. All that holds true for any note. Actually, in more advanced lessons, I will show that you can have a sharp for a B, and a half step from B and C. But for now, we want to know the names of the block notes, which are always called either sharp or flat. So therefore, a sharp of this note would be A sharp. A flat of B would be the same note but called B flat. Now, let us begin.
A, A sharp, B, C, C sharp, D, D sharp, E, F, F sharp, G, G sharp and then A again. A, A sharp, B, C, C sharp, D, D sharp, E, F, F sharp, G, G sharp, A, A sharp, B, C, C sharp, D, D sharp, E, F, F sharp, G, G sharp and then, we are going to begin to learn what the flats are by going down the chromatic scale, this scale is called the chromatic scale using flats. And then we will begin from this A going down. So, this will be A, then we go down to A flat. You will understand this if you just practice over and over again.
So this is A, now, half step down, half tone down is A flat. When you are lowering the tone by half step, it is called a flat. If you are raising the tone by a half step from a supposed key to G sharp is called a sharp. Now, the chromatic scale that we are using is a series of half steps. Let us go down the chromatic scale from A. A, G flat, G, G flat, F, E. E flat, D, D flat, C, B, B flat, A, A flat, G, G flat, F, E, E flat, D, D flat, C, B, B flat, A, A flat, G, G flat, F, E, E flat, D, D flat, C, B, B flat, A. now, there is not much to it as far as understanding it but you know, it is like a juggle, it is how quickly you can juggle this things in your mind when you are looking at the music. You know, anyone knows how to throw and orange from one hand to the other even two orange, this can be managed slowly but when you watch a juggle doing it, it is how quickly he manipulates this things in the air that astonishes you. It is the same thing with all this lessons. They have to be internalized so just like conditioned reflex, so that when you see the notes sharp or flat or natural, you play them immediately.
