G Minor.
Fourth finger on G,
let's see if we really have a G.
Okay that's a G.
We measured it, the open G,
and we don't hear any beats.
That's a real G.
G with the fourth finger, open A.
B flat first finger,
fourth finger on C, D open.
E flat with the first finger.
F with the fourth finger.
Open G.
Come back down.
F with the fourth finger.
E flat one.
D open, C with the fourth finger,
E flat with the first finger,
open G, and then back to G.
I mean that was an open A,
I'm sorry, and then back to G.
Make sure that you got that G.
Sometimes if you don't watch it,
we can be sharp on this.
So let's try that it again.
So the C, fourth finger,
first finger on B flat, A come around.
That's better.
Make sure you get that hand around or
you can play that G out of tune.
That's G minor.
