Now we're moving
on to A flat major.
[MUSIC]
A flat with the fourth finger.
[MUSIC]
Make sure we have a good A flat there.
You can check it.
[MUSIC]
This is a low E, and
then go up the scale.
[MUSIC]
Make sure you have that A flat or G sharp.
This is another one of
those enharmonic notes.
You can call it a G sharp or an A flat.
Let's call it A flat for now.
A flat with the fourth finger.
B flat with the first finger.
[MUSIC]
There's that C again.
We check it with the G string.
C with the second finger.
[MUSIC]
D flat with the fourth.
[MUSIC]
First finger on E flat.
[MUSIC]
F with the fourth finger.
Open G and then there's your A flat again.
A flat first finger, open G.
Fourth finger on F.
First finger on E flat.
Again, here's a shift from the E flat.
Similar to the last time we
shifted across those strings.
Almost slide up to the E.
Hit the D flat.
D flat with the fourth finger.
[MUSIC]
Two on C, first finger on B flat,
and fourth finger on A flat.
[MUSIC]
