VideoAbout the Lessons

1. Introduction Steve introduces this fine tune by Malacha Hall by telling the story behind it and mapping it on the instrument.
2. A Part Starting on the 3rd step of the scale, we notice what NOT to play in order to have a better chance at playing it in the box.
3. B Part We start on the 3rd step of the scale again, but an octave higher this time.  The B section is composed of “sequences” of musical phrases that repeat but start on different notes each time, which makes part of the tune accessible.
4. The Whole Tune Now we put all the pieces together to play the whole tune.
5. Adding a Bass Note Choosing the lowest places to play the name of the chords that go with this tune we add a bass note for simple embellishment.  By aiming for wide hand separation this further develops our skills for hand independence.
6. Adding Harmony Notes Another step in dressing up this tune is adding a harmony notes:  6th across the Treble bridge or 3rd below on the same side of the bridge.
