Here's a great tune for
you called Danny Boy.
In this chart there's only one
thing to be aware of really
which is the three pick up notes
leading into the beginning.
So you can tell, you know we're in four,
four time when you look at
the very upper left hand corner.
Top staff you see that C, that always
means that you're in four, four time.
So there's four beats to the bar,
and each quarter note gets one beat.
So, whenever you,
if the chart is written right,
if you have pickup notes,
the very first full
measure is always indicated by a double
bar as I've written right here.
And so, when I count us in,
I'm gonna give you five beats.
It'll be like one full bar and
then what would have been beat one, and
that will come in on beat two.
Work on this on your own, obviously, if
you've got any questions about the notes.
I wrote it so that us alto players
are playing in the key of C,
no sharps or no flats.
The B flat chart has one flat, so
you're playing in the key of F.
And I indicated at the end that the chart
is indeed ending with a fine down there.
That's a, it's a good thing,
especially on a piece of music like
this that takes up a full page.
If you're questioning whether
there's another page or
not, well, if you are just reading it,
it's a good thing to see that fine at
the end of your chart, because you know
that you haven't misplaced your second
page, that you are indeed at the end.
If you are writing a piece of music,
it's a good idea, especially if
you're at the bottom of a page like that,
to indicate that indeed that is the end.
You're also gonna note that it's the end
of the chart by the final bar line,
bar lines I should say,
at the end of the chart.
The thin bar line followed by
the nice thick bar line there and
that aways tells you
that you're at the end.
Okay so here is Danny Boy.
