1. Introduction - About The Course: Hello and welcome to the piano course for beginners. This one is for all the starters. So even if you have not learned or played the piano before, this course will teach you everything from scratch to even learning some of the well-known tombs. Learning the easy way by starting with simple exercises, scales, cards, and start learning songs on your own. Let me get you through some of the things that you will learn in this course. You will learn about how to practically remember the notes on the piano or the keyboard. You will get many exercises that will develop your finger independence and also the placement and movement of your fingers. You will also learn how to play the first six major scales with both hands. You will learn about some of the most important major and minor gods. And along with that, some of the card exercises. And last but not least, you will also learn some songs with both hands. So let's begin with the lessons right now. 2. Notes On Piano: Hello and welcome to the keyboard class for beginners. First of all, let's understand the nodes that are present on the keyboard. We can see that there are white and black keys. We're talking about black keys. We can see that the group of two black keys on group of three black devs, group of two, group of three, groups of 2, one group of three, and that gets repeated all over the keyboard. Now, the very first node on our keyboard, which is exactly below the first black key in a group of two black keys is the node C. So the next C I will find on my keyboard is S1. So in the group of two black keys, the white key to white key that comes below the first black tea and a group of black case is the node C, The next. See you ever find this in the next, the next one. And the next one is the very last node on our instrument. So I found 123456 keys, six Cs on my keyboard. So obviously if this is the scene or the next white guy that comes after it is God, as the node D. So it's easy to visualize the node B will be the one that is present in the center of the two black keys. I just played all the dy's. So obviously the next note, you guessed it is E. The next one is F. So it's easy to recognize F, the false white key in a group of three black keys. Below the group of three black. This is the note F, and the next one is G. And in English we know that the node that goes off the G is edge a, b, c, d, e, f, g, h, I, j, k, and so on. But we have to remember that in music that is no edge. The node that will come off the G is the node a. And obviously the node that will come after a is b. And we are back to C. So we can see that the nodes, all the white keys are C, D, E, F, G, a, and B. These are the white keys that they will get repeated all over the keyboard. At all. These black keys are called as shops. If this is a C note, if we call this node as the node C, then the node that will come after it, the black key, is God as a C-Sharp. If this is the node D, This is called as a D sharp. So let's quickly play all the C shops on our keyboard. This is the false one, C-sharp. So if the false black key in the group of two black key is God as a C-Sharp. The next black key right after the C-sharp is called as the B-sharp note. Now comes the group of three black keys and the forced black key. In a group of three black keys is God as F sharp, because this is f, c, d, e, f. The node that will come off the F is going to be F sharp. So let's play all F shops. Now, if you observe, after every node, you will find a black key except E and B. So if this is a C note, that is a C sharp, D, D sharp, E, There is no e-shop. We come to F. So that is no black key in between E and F. So all we have to remember is there is no e-shop. The node that comes off the E is F. Then F sharp, G, G sharp, a, a sharp, B. There is no B-sharp now, and we'll come back to c. So E and B do not have shops. So let's try and play some random nodes. Let's, let's see if we have understood the notes on the keyboard. If I say, try and recognize the node G-sharp. If you already have, I will play all the gi shops. This is the phosphate ion. This is the next one. This is the next one. This is the next one. And this and the last one. Well, now you're done. Try and identify the node F. If you've found it, this is the right one. All right, now you're done. Try and identify the node E shop. If you're found it. This is the one. Congratulations if you're funded, Let's find the node B. Hello, right? So this is the node B. I hope you've found all these nodes now, we have understood the nodes on the keyboard. If you've gone, there are total of 12 notes in music. 123456789, 10, 11, 12. So these are the 12 nodes that are getting repeated on the keyboard. I hope you have understood the notes on the keyboard. Let's get ready for the next lesson. 3. First 4 Exercises: Now let's understand what are the finger numbers that we are going to use for playing the keyboard? Our thumb is the first finger while playing the keyboard. Our index finger is finger number two. Middle finger is finger number three. Ring finger is finger number four. And our little finger is the finger number 5. So this is how regardless of the handling, your right hand or the left hand, your thumb is always going to be the first finger, and little finger is going to be fingered number five. So let's get started with the very first exercise that you can start off with. I'm going to start using my right hand on the third C. This is the first one. This is the second one, and this is the third one. So what I'm going to do is I'm going to be the very first exercise which involves the use of the first five white keys. I'm going to place my five fingers from C to G, like that. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. And I'm going to play it forward and reverse like this. So what I just did was I assign the fingers from C to G, Foster foil. We're going to assign the fingers like that. And then once our fingers are ready from C to G, my thumb is on the C, index finger is on, the middle finger is on E, ring finger is on F and little fingers on G. So after assigning the fingers, I'm just going to play those nodes one after the other, forward and reverse like this. And while I'm doing that, I'm going to say the nodes either loudly or in my mind so that I can memorize the nodes and visualize the notes that I'm playing. C, D E, F G, F, E, D, C. So while I'm doing the forward and reverse, I'm thinking in terms of E8 notes like this, 12345678. So while coming back, I am not repeating the genome. And even why going forward, I'm not going to repeat the C note when I'm going to try this in a loop without stopping like this. Now to do the same thing with our left hand, I'm going to use exactly the opposite. 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. My little finger is going to be on the node. See? My ring finger, forefinger is going to be on the node D, middle finger on E, index finger on F, and my palm on G. So after assigning the fingers from C to G like that, I would play these notes the same exact notes, which are C, D, E, F, G, F, E, D. So just going forward and reverse like that. So I'm going to do that three times with my right hand and three times with my left hand, like this, there we go. Same thing that my left. And once I'm confident about my individual hands, once the right-hand is happening, once the left-hand fingers up moving, I'm going to try and play them with both hands at the same time. So my right hand is doing 12345, my left hand is doing 54321 at the same time, five on the left and one on the right at the same time. For on the left and two on the right at the same time. Three finger number 3 on both hands than two finger number two on the left and four on the right. And then one on the left, had five on the right, like this. Like that. So once you feel confident about once your practices happened, once you feel that you are able to move the fingers pretty quickly, then you can increase the speed and you can try in loop and keep playing it like this. Like that. Now the next exercise is going to be on the same exact notes. I'm not going to move my fingers like those five nodes. Subtle. The five fingers are already assigned from C to G. And I'm going to do 125. So my fingers are going to be playing C, D, G, and D. So it's forward, travels forward, reverse like that. See the G, D, C, D G, B, D G. To do the same thing with my left hand, I'm going to do. Finger them was 5414 like this. So again, after practicing with mature individual hangs, joined both the hands and try to play. Now the exercise number three is about playing C, E, and G, which is 1, 3, and 5 without italic. Just forward and reverse. Same thing with our left hand is going to be 5, 3, 1, 3, like that. Again, after practicing with your individual hangs, you can join both of them and practice C, E, G, E like this. And exercise number 4 is playing C, F, G, F, with the right-hand. It's going to be one full five-fold like this. The left-hand, the same exercise is going to be using the fingers 5212, like this. And again joining with both times. So these four exercises, a few FU, analyze, they are all divided into falls between the first five nodes from C to G, all the white keys, C, D, E, F, G was to foster one. C, D, G was does next one. C E, G was the third one. I see FG, whilst a full dwarf. Same thing with a left. Now I'm going to do all four exercises with both hands together without stopping one after the other. Like that. There we go. 4. Exercise 5: Exercise number five is what I call the three node exercise, which is about starting from the node C and ending with the Node C with your three fingers. So it's going to start from the node C. Again, my right hand is starting from the third C, a fast second, third. And this is about moving one node ahead. So I'm going to play C, D E, D E F E, F G, F G, a, G, a, B. And ABC. So absorbed the finger placement as well. 1, 2, 3. After playing the third node, I'm getting my thumb on the dino like that. And then I'm lifting the middle finger. Just moving one node ahead. And you can do the reverse, which is going to be three to one finger numbers. To do the same thing that your left-hand. The finger numbers are going to be 321 and not 5, 4, 3, 3, 2, 1, starting from the middle finger like this. Also the finger placement as well. Most of the star does what they tend to do is to do the three nodes, the release it, and then do, try not to do that. When you play the three nodes. Don't lift that thumb before you go to the next one. So you are only going to lift the third note right before your going to hit the next note with your middle finger, like this. And the reverse is going to be 1, 2, 3. So again, after practicing this exercise with your individual hands, you try it with both times at the same time. Right-hand finger them both are going to be 1, 2, 3 by these two fingers are not going to come up like that because I'm just using these three fingers, which is 123. And for the left-hand, my ring finger and little finger are not going to come outside like that because I'm just using these three fingers. So with both hands at the same time, three-to-one with my left and 1, 2, 3 with my right. Prevalence. 5. Exercise 6: Exercise number six is what I call the two finger control exercise. Again, I'm going to place all the five fingers starting from the C to G like that. And I'm going to play the alternate nodes starting from the sea. So my 13 squared to be played at the same time like this, which are the nodes C and E at the same time. The next two notes, I'm going to play R, D, and F with finger numbers 24, respectively. The next two notes will be E and G. And then I'm going back to D and F. After placing the fingers from C to G, 12345, I'm just going to play the alternate nodes at the same time, CE, BF, EG, back to df, like that. Now, after doing that a couple of times like this, I'm going to move one note forward like this, starting from the node D. So my one entry will become D and F. Do N'T fall will become e and g. 35 will become F and a. Back to 24, like that. So, so the finger pattern remains the same, which is 13, 24, 35. I do fall starting from the C, I'm going to go all the way till the time I reached the node B till the day I might Tom, we just don't be like this. Like that. And the same thing while doing with your left hand. It's going to be starting from the finger number 5. So after placing the fingers from five to one, from C to G like that on the second octave, that is the second C on my keyboard. I'm going to play the 53, which is the node C and E. Then 42, figure them was 42, which is TNF than 3 and 1 which is E and G. And back to df like that. So often I'm getting used to the fingers shifting vans. I'm able to play with both the fingers at the same time. I'm going to move every single node forward like this. 6. Exercise 7: Let's move on to Exercise number 7. And exercise number seven is what I call the finger coordination. Wherein again, my fingers are going to be pleased from C to G. And I'm going to start from the node 15, which is the node C and G act the same time like this. The next two notes that I'm going to play, R, D, and F. The next note I'm going to play is e. So what I'm doing, if you visualize, I'm going I'm coming from the outside to the inside like that. I'm sorry if I'm CNG, then D and F, and then the E. After E, I can go back to DEF like this. So the complete thing is going to be the same thing with my left hand. But I'm going to start from the node E and set off the node CNG. So I'm going to go from the node E, then Bf than CG, and back to df. If you visualize what I'm doing with my left hand is starting from the inside and going outside like this. Opening it from the inside and from the right-hand I'm doing from the outside to the inside. So again, with my right hand starting from the node C, G, D, F, E, D F. Finger them was 15, do for training and 24. But my left hand starting from the node E from the inside. But just with my middle finger, finger number 3, 42, which is D and F 51 which is CNG. And back do for du, which is DNF. So from the inside to the outside again. Now these exercises are to be played at the same time once you are done with practicing your individual hands, I'm going to start with CG on the right and I'm going to start start with the E note on my left, df on the boat, CG on the left, and E on the right. Like that. So I'm still going from the outside to the inside with my right and I'm going from the inside to the outside with my left. Let's try and do it and loop. Now after doing that, you can interchange the hand, which is starting from the node C, G with your left hand, starting from the node E with your right. So CG on the left and Eve at your ride at the same time on both 0s on the left and CGI with your life like that. So this time I'm going from the inside to the outside with my right hand. I'm going from the outside to the inside with my lifetime. If you visualize that. 7. Exercise 8: Now let's move on to exercise number 8, which is what I call the finger independence exercise. Now, if you remember the very first exercise, we placed our fingers from C to G with our 12345 fingers on the right-hand and 50, 3, 2, 1 with a left-hand. Now this time via going to skip the second node. And we are still going to use the same rule of finger numbers, which is 54321234. And the nodes are going to be C, E, F, G, a G, F E Psalm. Just going forward and reverse, I'm taking off total eight notes, C, D E, F G, a G, F E. So if you consider the five nodes instead of c, d e, f g, I'm doing C, E, F G, a, a, I'm just skipping the second note. It's all about it. Just skipping the second note of the sea. So after I'm done with that, I will start from the node D. And the next node that comes after b is e. So I'm going to skip the node E. And the next set of nodes are going to be D, E, F, G a, B, a, G, F. The next set of nodes are going to be starting from E, but I'll skip the note F. The next is going to be flooding from F, but skip the next node. The next is starting from q0, next starting from a, next starting from B. And we will end on C. While we're doing that with our left hand, I'm going to play multiple notes with my right hand. I'm not going to play the same thing with my right hand. So on the fourth line, which is, I'm going to play the note C, E, and G, just the ordinate white notes, which is like that. But I'm going to hit those nodes on the very first node of my left hand, like this. But I'm going to the next line of my left hand. I'm going to start from the node B. And again, I'm going to play the alternate nodes, which is D, F, and a, and goes like this. Then starting from E, you guessed it. I'm going to play E, G, and B with my right-hand. Then starting from F, my right-hand will be FAC. Starting from the node G, the north with my right hand, I'm going to be GBD. Starting from the node a. My right hand is going to be playing ECE. Starting from the last line we just saw from the B, my right hand is going to be B, D, and F. And the last note, I'm going to play the note C, E, G with my right hand. And that's four, I'm going to end it. So the complete thing is going to sound like this with both hands. Here we go off to doing that exercise for multiple times. You can change industries the hand again and do the multiple nodes, three nodes with your left hand. The exercise with your right hand, like this. But this exercise really helps if you're doing it with your left hand and if you're playing those three nodes with your right hand, that was about exercise number 8. 8. Major Scales Introduction & C Major Scale: Well, let's get introduced to what major scales are. A major scale is a set of notes played one after the other. There are total seven notes in major scale. If you include the last note, which is the eight note, is, it is the same as the first note. A major scale sounds like this. We already know that there are total 12 notes in music, and every node has its major scale. A-major scale can be formed from every note, but every major scale have different nodes. For example, if I play the C major scale, my C naught is going to be the first node. If I'm going to play the E major scale, the node p will be the first node. If I play the F sharp major scale, F-sharp is going to be the first node, and the rest of the nodes are going to be different for every major scale. But in the order of learning the major scale, the very first major scale that we are going to learn is the C major scale, which has no sharp know senate, if we play all the white keys from C to C, playing the C major scale like this. But in order to play it fluently, in order to play it in the right way, in a comfortable way. That is a rule as to what fingers to use with your right-hand and left-hand white playing the media skills to play the C major scale with my right hand, I'm going to use the finger numbers 12312345, like this, 1231234512312345. The nodes are C, D, E, F, G. See. Now just observe the placement of the fingers after doing the 123. I'm not releasing the note and I'm not going from the top like that. Instead of that. Again, after doing the three nodes, without releasing that note, I'm taking my thumb from the bottom and I'm getting ready on the F. And right after I play the note F, I'm releasing the note, which was the third note on the E. And right after getting my thumb on the F, the rest of the fingers, I'm getting ready on the next set of notes. And yes, you can come back reverse as well. And the finger numbers are going to be 54321321. That's sort of goes forward. I drew us now to do the same thing, which is to play the same C major scale with a left-hand finger numbers are going to be five-fold, three-to-one, three-to-one like that. Five 4321. And then I'm going to dig my Tom from the top like that on a and play that. 3, 2, 1, so 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 3. The North saw C, D, E, F G AMP. See, same thing. Revolves is going to be 1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. So you practice dark many times. You've practiced at nighttime separately, you practice the left-hand separately. And once you feel confident that yes, you are able to play the forward and reverse in proper speed, then you can try with bold tags at the same time. 12312345, without white-eyed fifo, three-to-one, three-to-one with our left hand. At the same time. Let's do that again. Frivolous. So that is a little tough in the beginning when you are trying it for the first time with bold tags. But if you just practice with your individual Heinz many times, that only then you try and join with both times at the same time. Left tire. 9. How to play G Major Scale: The next major scale that we are going to learn is a G-major scale. And to play the G major scale again, I'm going to use the same finger numbers for the right-hand of which are 1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. Let's see what the nodes of a G major scale are. The nodes of a G major scale. G, a, B, C, D, E, F sharp, and G. So the schottky that is present in the G-major scale is F sharp. So again, I'm doing 12312345. Let's try with our left hand on the second octave. Finger numbers for the left-hand again, are going to be the same, which is 54321321, like this. So let's try with both hands at the same time. Reverse. So 1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 with our right hand forward, 54321321, with our left hand forward. One Schottky, which is F sharp in the G-major scale, left-hand. 10. How to play D Major Scale: So let's learn the next major scale, which is the D-major scale, in which there are going to be too sharp keys. And the nodes of a D major scale, our E, F sharp, G, a, B, C-sharp, and B. So the note F-sharp and C-sharp, other two, Schottky, is that a pleasant in the D major scale, you have to memorize the notes of all major scales as you're practicing them. Again for the D major scale, if you observe I'm using the same fingers, which is 1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. Here we go. Let's try it again. There was the same set of fingers for a lifetime that we used for the previous major scales, which is the C major scale and G-major scale. And the finger that goes off 54321321, astride again, the most. So let's play the D major scale with both eyes at the same time. F-sharp and C-sharp. Order to shop keys that are present in D major scale, left-hand. 11. How to play A Major Scale: Now the next major scale that we are going to learn is E major scale. Let's see what the loads of images scalar. The nodes are, a, B, C-sharp, D, E, F-sharp, G-sharp, and 80. So we can see that C sharp, F sharp, and G sharp are the three shop nodes that are present in a major scale. And again, for this major scale, I'm going to use 1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 as the finger them was for my right hand. Let's try and play the a major scale forward and reverse three times. There we go. And the rule for using the finger numbers with your left hand remains the same for a major scale, which is 54321321, As the finger numbers. Let's play the a major scale with our left hand, starting from the first octave. Let's try and play the a major scale with both hands at the same time. I'm starting with a total active on the right hand and the false octave of the left-hand of the first e on the left, and the third a on the right hand. Here we go. 12. How to play E Major Scale: Let's learn the next major scale. And in the next major, scared that I'm going to be for sharp keys. And the next one you just scale is E major scale. So let's quickly find out the nodes of E major scale. The notes of a major scale are E, F sharp, G sharp, a, B, C-sharp, D-sharp, and back to E. So F sharp, G sharp, C sharp, and D sharp, a sharp keys that are present in E major scale. And again, the finger numbers for E major scale remains the same, which are 1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 with our right hand, Five, 4321321 With our left-hand. Let's try a forward at the hospital, right had three types, heavy go. With the left hand. Let's fire play the E major scale. It both ears at the same time. Every Go. 13. How to play B Major Scale: Now the next way to say it is the major scale in which there are total five shop knows all five sharp nodes. And that may just keel is the B major scale. And the notes for the B major scale. All five shops and the only natural nodes that are present in this scale. The only white keys that are present in this scale are the node B and E. The rest are all the shop nodes like this. B, C-sharp, D-sharp, E, F sharp, G sharp, a sharp, and B. And again, for the right-hand, the finger numbers are going to be the same, which are 1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. B, C sharp, D sharp E, F sharp, G sharp, a sharp, B. Let's see what can we do to play the D major scale with a left-hand nav to play the B major scale with a left hand for the first time, we are going to change the finger numbers. And the reason why we are gonna do that is because if we'd follow the rule of the using the same finger numbers with our left-hand, which are fifo three-to-one, three-to-one. If you follow that through, then tom is going to come on a black key. And when the thumb comes on a black key, by playing the major scale, it becomes uncomfortable for our fingers or the hand to move forward. For example, if I play the B major scale like this, my thumb is coming on a black key. So instead of doing that, I'm going to use the finger numbers 4, 3, 2, 1, 4 3, 2, 1, like this. 43214321. The sharp D sharp E, F sharp, G sharp, a sharp B. But it also is going to be 12341234. But let's do the B major scale with both the hashtags. My left hand is going to go 4, 3, 2, 1, 4, 3, 2, 1. And right-hand as the rest of the majuscule stuff seemed rule which is 12312345, that's rambling that blue tires. 14. Major & Minor Chords: Let's learn about some of the most important major and minor chords that are used to play the songs. So what does the card accord is playing two or more than two notes at the same time. And usually for playing a piano or left-hand does the job of playing the chords. So if I'm playing anything like this, athlete, three different gods. So the very false god that we're going to learn is a C major chord and the nodes in the C major chord, r, c, e, and G. So whenever you're playing these three nodes together, that is a C major chord. You can write this term somewhere. You can make a separate table of the guards that we are learning, the very false god, you can just write down C major and the nodes are C, E, and G. That's the very first chord, C major chord. The next chord is E minor, and the nodes in E minor chord are E, c, and E, all the white keys. So you can quickly write down the notes of E minor, which are a, C, and E. The next chord in the list is f Major. And the nodes of F-Major chord, our F, a and C. All the white keys again. So if you're finished to noting down the loads of F-Major chord, that's more to the next chord, which is G major chord. And the nodes of a G major chord, R, G, B, and D. Gbd. All white keys again, so again quickly, otherwise the phosphor chord, C major, C E, G, E minor, ECE, F-major, FEC. At G major, GBD. The next chord in the list is D minor, and the lords of a D minor chord, or D, F and E. All white gives again, the next chord in the list is E minor chord. And the nodes of an E minor chord are E, G, and B. So we've finished almost all the cards that have all the white keys except the B. Because if we play BDNF like that, That's another cortex. It's not a major or minor chord. So we have learned C major, which is C E, G, D minor, DFA, E minor, EGB, F-major, FAC, G major, GBD, and E minor ACE. So, so far we have learned three major chords and three minor chords. The next card is B major at the nodes of a D major chord, or B, F sharp and E. The next chord is a major. At the nodes of an image, a chord are E, C sharp, and E. That's a major. The next is E major chord, and the nodes of an image of God, or E, G-sharp and B, E major. So nine guards so far. Now the last chord that we will learn in this lesson is a sharp major, because this is the card deck week accused in one of the songs that we will learn in this course. So the nodes of E sharp major or a B flat major are a sharp, B and F. Just remember the nodes of a sharp major chord. So just memorize these scores. You can make a table and write down the notes of all the courses that you have learned. 15. Chord Combinations (Grouping Chords For Practice): So now that you've learned some of the most important chords that are used while playing songs. What we're going to do is we're going to group some of these cars and make guard combinations and practice as a part of our exercise. The very first combination that we are going to use is C major chord, E minor chord, F major chord, and G major chord. C major, E minor, F major, and G-Major. Now the way to practice this with both hands is my left hand is going to be on the second octave for the first card, which is C major. So this is the first C on the keyboard, and this is the second. And my right hand is going to be on C Number 4, which is 1, 2, 3, 4. So the full score for the right-hand is over here. And for the first card on the left hand is going to be here. So C major, then for E minor chord, my right hand will go behind, and my left hand will go forward. E minor, ECE. For F-major, both these sides will go behind FAC. And G-major is right beside the F-Major, which is GBD. All right, so we're going to do this exercise by playing the chords four times, by playing each card four times, and then reducing it to two dimes and then reducing it to only one time. So the first combination, C major, a minor, F major, and G major, four times every guard here we go, 1, 2, 3, foe. Two times on every guard, only once. So you might take time to ship from one chord to the other, but that's the target, That's the goal to be able to shift from one chord to the other quickly in dime. So you can just start slow and do it four times on every guard and practice the shifting from C major to a minor to F major to G major. One of the commonly used chord progressions in popular music. Thus more to combination number two. And the second combination of courts that we will use our C major, G major, a minor, and F major. So the same set, of course, that we used for the false combination, but we have just shuffled the sequence, the order of gourds, C, G, E minor, F. Here we go four times on every car. So you can start slow. I'm doing pretty fast in the shifting and all you can start for real slow. You can also start like this. So that is about combination of them were two cards. Combination number 3 is E minor. F major. C major. G major. Seem exact octaves that we used for the previous combinations. Let's start with the right-hand E minor, F major, C major, and G major. Let's start with wool times E minor, C, G. So again, you can start slow and reduce it to two times. And then once on every god and practice the shifting of those scores. Now a chord combination number four is, we're going to start from the G major cartilages, G, B, D. Then E minor will be the next card. Egb. C major will be the third guard. And be Meijer with enough food. Last chord, G major, E minor, C major, and D major. For playing this combination, my right hand is going to play all the scores in the third octave. So Maya toad G, 123. So G major, E minor chord starting from the third, E, 1, 2, 3, C major, starting from third, C, and D major right beside it, started from authority. And my left hand, I'm starting from the second update, GBD, E minor, EGB, C major, C E, G, D major D, a Shopee. So let's say for dimes on every guard CI, CD card combination number four. Here we go. 16. How to play Happy Birthday (Right Hand Melody): Now one of the simplest song that you can learn as your first song is the happy birthday. And so really simple dune, let's go to learn how to play that with the right-hand. So there are only four lines for people to do. In the first line is C, C, D, C, F, E. The next is CCD, CGF. The next is CC, higher octave, C, E, F, E, D. And the last is a sharp 2 times e, f, g, and f. Sampling it in the fourth octave. You can also play it in the third octave if you like. Two. 17. How to play Happy Birthday (With Chords): But let's have a look at the court's off Happy birthday for the full sine of Happy Birthday with God's line number, do line number 3. I line them before. So the complete thing. 18. How to play London Bridge - Both Hands: Well, the next all that you've done long as a complete beginner, is the most simple, beautiful, and Wolff the smallest rhyme that you can loan, which is London Bridge, and the right-hand of London Bridge goes like this. So the full slide off though, from Google's G a G, F E, F G, B E F E F G. Then again, G a G, F E, F G, a, B, G, E, C. And we're going to use only the C major and D major gourds only do gourds throughout the song. Let's see how to play that with the goats. Full slide. So see majo against C major, G major. C major. C major. C major, G. C. 19. How to play Ode To Joy - Both Hands: The next important song you can learn as a beginner is Ode to Joy. And the right-hand melody of Ode to Joy sounds like this. So there are only four lines of 0 to George. So the full slang goes like this. Number 2 Lambda 3, lambda before. Now the easiest way to remember all these lines is just also affect the line number 12 are the same except the last three notes, the last scene or it's for the full slide, are. And the last three nodes for the second line. And line them before is the same as line number two. Except in the beginning. Line number 2 has two 0s and line them before the last line has three 0s. That's the only change. The rest is exactly the same as ln number 24. Line them are full, so that's how you can remember the complete song. Let's see what course we can use for Ode to Joy. Line number one. Low-light level one will have C major and G visual like this. C, G. C, G lambda will do will have C Major, F major, and G Major. F, C, G. C. Line number three, you have to change the course pretty quickly. The chord change is pretty false compared to the previous lines. And the chords are G major, C, G, C, G, E, E minor, G. Now for the last G-Major, Oh, I'm not using gbd. We go down to want the D on the higher octave to make it sell. I'm just playing the DNG as the G major chord, the complete Jean Piaget stove, GBD. You can't lead GBD, but this is harmonizing the sound and I want the g sound on the higher octave with my left hand. So I'm using DNG as a substitute to the complete G-Major chord in the last in the code lines. So let's do the line number 3, albeit slowly one more time. And the last line, C major, C, G, C. So the complete thing with gods.
