Now Let's
do A flat minor.
A-flat minor, there's that note again.
[SOUND] A-flat, the one that we all have
to deal with and make sure we've got that.
We're gonna walk up from E, G-flat and
A-flat to make sure we
have [SOUND] that in tune.
That helps to walk up from the bottom.
[SOUND] So A-flat minor.
There's the fourth finger on A-flat,
then C-flat two, [SOUND] E-flat one.
That's root position.
And first inversion, third in the bass.
[SOUND] C-flat two, [SOUND] E flat one.
[SOUND] A-flat one.
[SOUND] Then lastly, the second inversion,
[SOUND] E-flat, that's the fifth.
First finger [SOUND] A-flat, first finger
and [SOUND] C-flat, fourth finger.
So the sound of A-flat minor.
[MUSIC]
