Hey guys, welcome to Piano lesson number 31. Today I am going to teach you something different. Today I am going to teach you tutorials on a song called Fur Elise, so it is going to be instructional video. I am going to try to go inside as much as the details possible, I am only going to teach the easy part of that which is the first top basic line. I am not going to play that (Piano playing), not that part. Just the main theme that are going in on, (Piano playing), that part.
Okay so, first of all I got some light in so hopefully that helps. I am only doing this because I want to piece of my form requested that you know, I show how to deal the left in between the Es like this one (Piano playing). Now, I decided that okay well, I am doing that and I just want to show the whole song from that I could do. So I am going to show if all kind base into the tragibe. Okay, so first thing I want to do is show you guys what purely slacks like. Alright so, you have got the title for this now, it can be broken up to basically we are going to line to hear. Now, this is basically the main theme of purely that is to. This is the opening and then it is going to lead in to (Singing), so this is (Singing), and I comes back already here (Singing), and then you can basically close it off so that Euless and sounds like you can play the four version. At the four versions is quiet a bit harder got like these days that you cannot share and goes over here and got this a little fun passage and yeah!
That is too much to teach in one video and take quiet a bit of work and a lot of time and I do not think it could be worth the effort basically. So, I am going to teach you guys, this is a really a factor because I actually use to do this in performing when I did not actually have this part line. I just would go and then I had play background music for seniors, I will on the city like 5 or 6 hours a week, straight performing. So, what I do is, I just loop this back and back and back and back and back and like few of this like 6 minutes long and the people did that (pig sounds) and me a couple of people, they pay attention and they, there are two or three that you know, know what is happening so I just kind of flip it around then I aid up time that way. And people really enjoy that even though they are just sleeping around.
This is a very nice theme and it is can be easily played too, so that is why I am going to focus on it. So, this is the first part here, so we go (Singing), I am a bad singer, I know. So if you guys are still got your ears like unplug and you are still listening to me that is the first part and then we are going to this part, it is (Singing), and he has go this funky thing here (Singing) and the easy jumping out and then you suppose to switch hands here. It is an extended one and goes back to this and then we can close it. So I am going to teach you how to close it there but you can actually just keep this piece this over and over and over and over again. Buy it one to get it back here then you just pretend you are doing this and then you just go back to these and you can do it over and over as many times as you like until you satisfied.
Okay, so that is that. Now, the explain that we org with the plan is. Now, all I have to show you with the notes are, so okay. So the first part that (Singing), that is the most famous part of purely, several knows that part. You play the first bar and I do not know what the song is, so I will teach how to do that. Basically, it is really easy because your hand is never have to move, all you got to be doing is go 5, 4, 5, 4, 5 and then 2, 4, 3, 1, so, 5, 4, 5, 4, 5 and then 2, 4, 3, 1. Pretty easy right?
Okay so, what are you going to do is you place your thumb on the A above middle C, so you find middle C, go up to the A, press on that (Piano playing), there that fuse out. Now, you got that position for this part. So now, you are going to go up to the E which your hand, if your one finger is on each note, your fifth finger should on like would be on E now. So you play (Piano playing), five on E and you go four on D# (Piano playing). I go back and forth (Piano playing), now we are going to go 2 on B, 4 on D, 3 on C, and then 1 on A, so like this (Piano playing), nice. Now, when you do it-it should be really soft (Piano playing), nice and expresser. Okay so that is our part.
