I'm gonna play a really old song now and
I just, I just thought of this because
I've never actually played this before.
But, I thought it would be a perfect
showing you how we are turning those
tenths into playing music.
It's a, it's a real old, old song.
All those tenths are in there.
Now, something I want to, to say as well
is that sometime, when you,
when you start playing the guitar and you
tend to play down, down this end in,
in positions around here.
Sometimes guitar players get a bit worried
when they're, they're playing up here.
They think well this is, this is for
advanced players, when you start moving up
It's not at all.
I've already shown you that, about
The length of the fretboard.
Don't worry about it.
It's not the deep end or anything,
you know, you can still swim when you're
You can still put your feet on the ground,
so don't worry about it.
So don't think that playing past here is,
is for advanced players.
It's not at all.
This is for, you know, everybody to find
their way up here.
So again, you'll, I'm gonna play this in
such a way that I'm really gonna reveal
the scaffolding that I keep calling the
scaffolding of, of the tense.
And, as I say, I've never played this
before, but because I know how this works,
how this works.
The, the, the intents and little lines I
can put in the middle,
I can come up with an arrangement really
pretty much off the top of my head.
So I've got tenths going on, we got, which
is a little bit like the left hand
of a piano or, or a guitarist accompanying
you, and make the melody sing.
Make the melody really come out.
Make sure that that's really, really
you may want to have a try at playing
Even if you just take in some of the
elements that I'm,
that I'm using and a few little.
I put a few little what can we say?
Expressive techniques here.
And, I'll try and put some little
expressive things here and there,
but mostly I want to show you how it works
with the tenths getting the melody on
the top, and don't think of this again as,
as a note for note piece.
You may want to play it note for note, but
just, just take this I'm showing you,
I'm pointing you in, in, in this
And again, we've got the camera above so
you can see everything that's going on,
left hand, right hand.
And we're gonna slow it down for you too.
Once you feel confident with this, and
you've, you mess around a little bit.
Maybe, try and play it as, as closely to
the way I play it or
just, just find little, little things of
your own in there.
When you feel conf, confident with that,
if you wanna send me a video.
I would love to see that, and I'd be happy
to give a response.
