is Peery Habits level two, muscular lesson
number seven.
So, this week you're going to continue to
practice your muscle builders and
power fingers exercise at metronome 100.
You can choose any skips you want.
It's just a matter of doing it every day.
You're getting in the habit of practicing
this exercise every day.
It will keep your muscles strong and
help you be able to play whatever piece
you want to play, and play it very well.
Now in our hand over hand exercise, we're
also going to stay at metronome 100.
Please continue to practice the C major
chord, hand over hand.
G major chord, hand over hand, one time,
every day.
And then we're also going to add a new
key, F major.
So, C, G, and F are the group one keys in
our hand over exercise.
And they're grouped together because they
all look alike.
So can you guess what G excuse me, can you
guess what F major chord looks like?
Okay, let's follow that same pattern.
Find the F on the piano.
Then we skip our second finger and go to
third, skip our fourth and go to five.
And there's F major.
With left hand we start with finger five.
Skip our finger four, and go to three.
Skip our finger two, and go to one.
Now play it all together.
F major.
So now your hand's probably quite used to
playing the chord and so
it's just a matter of getting your eye and
finding that F quickly.
So this is also helping us recognize the
different notes on the keyboard.
Let's go through the hand over hand F
major exercise.
Metronome 100.
[SOUND] Ready go.
Drop, relax, prepare.
Drop, relax, prepare.
Drop, relax, prepare.
Drop, relax, top note.
Drop, relax, prepare.
It's an F this time.
Drop, relax, prepare.
Drop, relax, prepare.
Drop, relax, you're done.
So practice muscle builders,
power fingers, C, G, F major chords hand
over hand this week.
Put it all on your practice chart.
Five days, you need to practice all these
until you're ready to come and start
muscular lesson number eight.
