Now, we're
gonna do B flat major.
And this is called second inversion cuz
we have the fifth, which is the F note,
in the bass.
So, we start on low F,
but we play B flat major.
[SOUND] F with the first finger,
[SOUND] B flat with the first finger.
[SOUND] Open D.
[SOUND] F, fourth finger.
[SOUND] Open D.
[SOUND] Fourth finger on F.
[SOUND] Fourth finger on B flat.
[SOUND] We're gonna break it up there,
and use the open D.
[SOUND] F on the fourth finger.
[SOUND] First finger, B flat.
[SOUND] Open D.
[SOUND] Low F with the first finger.
[SOUND] Open D.
[SOUND] F with the fourth finger.
[SOUND] Open D.
[SOUND] And B flat one.
Again, here's the sound of it, without
all the fingerings it sounds like this.
[MUSIC]
