So I'm going to I showed you the first position. Actually, you're going to play, see major court, but notes seeing me so learned a note saying You need to play them at the same time and each rhythmical figure lasts three beats because we have a doctor half note. So what you can do is to play this four times, for example, and they play one note after another, and this is the first position. The second position you're going to place the G major corporate you need to play. I mean, the being the engines play this four times, for example, and then play mean gene the green several times.
