Now, let's do E flat minor.
Let's start with the E flat.
The root in the bass.
[SOUND] E flat.
[SOUND] G flat with the fourth finger.
[SOUND] And B flat with the second finger.
That's one, [SOUND] four, [SOUND] and
two, [SOUND] fingering wise.
Now, we're gonna do the third in the bass,
which is the first inversion,
which is G flat [SOUND] two, [SOUND] B
flat one, [SOUND] and E flat one, so
there's your first inversion.
[SOUND] Now, the fifth in the base,
which is the second inversion,
B [SOUND] flat one, E [SOUND] flat one,
and [SOUND] G flat four.
So, the sound of B minor is this.
[MUSIC]
Now, at this point,
you might wanna send me a video.
But remember, before you send a video in,
check out what I've said
to the other students.
And I will take a look at yours,
and give you some feedback.
