going to play a tune now called Polka Dots
and Moonbeams and
what I'm going to do with this, with this
I'm gonna set the whole kind of mood of
the, the tune at the very beginning.
There's something I heard, and I think it
was a classical piece of music.
I think it was Debussy.
Have the, Debussy's harmonic sense is just
and he's a composer that I suggest you
listen to, particularly if you're,
if you're interpreting ballads and more
romantic pieces, because you can learn an,
an unbelievable amount from listening to a
composer like Debussy.
But I think, it, it was something like
That kind of movement.
Which, which, which I've al, always liked.
So I'm gonna play something, something
What's what I'm really going to, to really
demonstrate on this is the idea of playing
When I actually come to, to playing in
I'm not actually gonna play four in the
I'm not gonna play.
I'm not actually gonna,
I'm not actually gonna play that.
I'm gonna suggest it, and the way I, the
way I suggest that,
first of all is setting up the, the tune
the way I phrase it.
Instead of just playing th, those notes,
but play the,
the first part of the melody in time and,
very rhythmically and that should set up
the f, the feel and
the mood and you should be able to just
feel the time.
Then a lot of the accompanying I'm gonna
be doing here,
the, the chords based on tenths as we,
we've been doing before.
A lot of that would just be like you can
imagine the left hand comping on a piano
when a jazz piano player plays so I'm not
actually gonna really be playing time.
I'm just gonna be suggesting the time with
these little rhythmic comps and
stabs that would be on the left hand of
I'm also gonna use some, some of the
that I've been showing you of, of
hammer-ons and pull-offs.
Something probably that didn't, didn't go
something like trills as well, this kind
I'm also going to play this in a key.
Normally, I think this is in the key of F,
but I'm, I'm going to play it in the key
of D because I want to use some of the
open strings to play the melody.
It makes things a lot easier.
Make's it very guitaristic, when you,
when you play, when you play in, in keys
So, you can incorporate stop notes with
And it, one of the things that that does,
it then has a very kind of harp like
So when we're playing something like this
that is essentially quite a romantic
sounding piece of music it has a kind of
And almost like a, a, like a waterfall
kind, kind of sound.
So I'm gonna play this an incorporating a
lot of these these techniques and
this is Polka Dots and Moonbeams.
