Sharp f sharp and the d.a. E again and This is the next practice part to repeat this again and again, okay practice part is a very important verb in this tutorial and you have to Be able to play this While you’re sleeping or what you’re speaking as I do now Because when we bring both hands together now. This is really complicated for your brain. This is although if you can each hand along perfect This will be a great challenge to play it This is something [that] very very hard how this is hard work for your brain ok so m Let’s write I will show you the first practice part f sharp and a together then CnG shop together C.

Just to finish the first part We can wait a bit then we start Yeah, and that’s the intro the first part If there’s a small part which you don’t make way or maybe play again and again and again the wrong notes Just keep practicing this part the secret is to Play it again and again to repeat this again and again. This is the only secret for example if you play Always at the same part then just don’t repeat the whole Just repeat Yeah, so that you can play [the] right note And you can also repeat This is the very small part. This is the way to practice the right way I know sometimes it’s hard to do this But I promise this is the fastest and most effective way to learn this piece I promise there is no other way to learn it faster Okay, welcome to part number two and now we have the main theme, and this is this one Yeah, this is what you will learn in this part um okay.

[okay]? again again and again Okay in now both together the first and the second practice Pad again And this is just a bit fast faster So what you can do now, what makes the sound much Much nicest that you hold the pedal if you have a pedal and for your keyboard for your piano And this is great if you have three pedals, please use the right one if you have to also Please choose the right one and if you have just one please choose this if you have no pedal Try to get one it’s really important to have a pedal on your keyboard on your piano It doesn’t matter what you have and it’s not so expensive I think you can get one for the ten bucks or maybe twenty bucks in the internet Yeah it’s a it’s a pedal and this is a very important tool for each and piano player and just have a look if your keyword supports one it’s a sustain pedal quality on sustained as us t a I and sustain pedal So and what the pedal does is you press the pedal I to press the keys I I play the keys I leave them, but we still listen to the sound This is because the pedal is down now. I leave it and also, the sound is away, so And now I presses and then play the same ok Wow Wonderful, okay, but what I have to do and this is the reason why we only use it now now I Have to leave it and press it immediately here with my food, but this is my food it goes [up] and immediately down Because if I do not if I’m not doing it it sounds like this This is a bit Yeah in Germany. We call it much It’s it’s not it’s very well be called also call it Bry bry here, huh, this is this is something This not nice. It’s too much, so Now yeah as I said now you left it and press press it immediately again, okay? Okay, that’s it this is the first part this is great, but the Big second part is not ready yet, because we all so have this and the left hand place um yep, a Ok this is great because we play both hands always together a and c. E And D. I’m A C-Sharp and eve. They are your C sharp is this?

I promise Okay, so that’s it. This is the whole part and this is a very warm yeah movie You already made a lot if you can play it like this, okay. Let me show you what we learn in this part you And a bit faster You sorry Yeah, that’s it and doesn’t this sound beautiful It’s amazing right? Okay, cool, and this was part number two. Let’s go on with part number three Welcome to part number three and in this point. I have a very important message to you if you want to play the piano or any other instrument because This is a very good example if you like you whom I if you love the song River flows in you You probably know the very beautiful live version here on YouTube here and We also has this wonderful masterpiece yeah, and The live version is much longer than the studio version on the origin CD He sold the origin singer was um and the version is much shorter It’s much shorter, and he plays so many different things and notes He play many different snows for example I’m here later. I’m going to show you Use something like this Yeah, oh in the live version he does much much more of This and for example in the left hand if you [have] if you have the f minor chord at a dD f Sharp Minor pot you can play f sharp minor like this you can play it like this you Can play it like this you can bet like this you can play it like this This all is f minor because the core is made from a shramana a and C sharp Just three notes But these three notes are on the whole piano f sharp Ac sharp f sharp Ac shop and you can combine In it in any way, you like you can play it also like this This is f f sharp mana is the great boom boom Okay, I have to practice but um I hope and I think I guess you know what I mean what I want to say There are many options to play a single song and this is called interpretation It depends on your personal interpretation what you really want to play and I promise [each] time you won’t play the song He always says another interpretation and please don’t Sir Thomas, but why are you now playing this note because in the last video you didn’t play this note And now this is wrong and in my notes and my sheet music. I have at home these are the wrong notes no The notes are just written by one single person, okay, don’t trust the notes Don’t trust your sheets. This is written by a single person Maybe two or maybe ten other person had look on it, but this is [just] the opinion of this person This [is] just their interpretation, and this is not a law. It’s not a lot, okay this is very important because You can do so much more if you really know that you have the freedom you can make so much More beautiful music if you know that you have the freedom to play f minor f sharp minor like this you Okay, this is just something What is very important to me what you should know of course you don’t have to understand each sing a detail water I’m going to explain to [you] with the cards and so on later I will explain and I will show you how these cuts are made in detail but please when I play sometimes a e and C sharp and in Another point ae and a instead of a instead of C sharp Ya Don’t see this as a mistake. This is just interpretation for example. What [yiruma] also does is? long bum bum bum bum bum bum bum bum bum and now lump Pom Pom Pom Pom Pom Sometimes he repeats pum pum pum pum pum pum pum he plays it twice sometimes just bum bum bum bum bum bum sometimes just one time and sometimes twice rum pum pum pum pum pum pum pum pum pum pum pum yeah, but I promise sometimes sometimes he do they do and sometimes not it depends on the appropriate on his mood Okay, this was a very important third part and let’s go on [with] the part number four Welcome to part number four in Impart number four I have just a small variation of part number two and this Is all me in the right tent Everything stays the same you But now we repeat it. This was part number two now it we get to today’s part bum bum bum and we don’t play bum bum Cbse shabby we play lump pom-Pom one Octave higher Ampun C-Sharp be not here Bom Bom. We played one octavia bum and Then we don’t play lump and bump then we play lum bum bum bum bum this is lump on bum bum bum see shop be a G-Sharp lump and bump and a C-Sharp me a tea shop. A lump on pum pum pum rum pum pum pum pum, but we have a small Very small variation, it’s this before we play play see shall we play the e but only very very short and The straw the much stronger note is the CC. Shop. Don’t play it like this Not Param Param, this is wrong. It’s 10 This is something like a ghost note here You shouldn’t it. It’s not on the front. It’s just in the background keep it this note in the background and Try to play like this C sharp b a g sharp a ok and all the other nodes stay the same as in the second part so we have and I’m and with Octave Para bum bum bum Lumpam do it Via C.

We play the e in the left hand now Sorry Okay Okay, and wonderful now you can play a lot you you Okay, and let Michelle and some more variations the first one is in the left hand try to play I’ll Try to change the octave okay for example sometimes you play f Sharp see a shop here and sometimes you can pay to you Yeah, but decide when you want to play it which way and also the same with the Lady okay, the next one is a Aec sharp symptoms aea and sometimes ae ac sharp bum bum bum bum? bum bum bum bum bum sometimes ae a CFp bum bum bum bum bum and then e is e be e, but also e be gf Because the G shop belongs to e major to the Scott Try to to play this in different stats ok have a look at my left hand no you I can also play f sharp C sharp eh This is the first variation you can try The next thing and the last thing I want to Teach you in this part is or What I want to show you is that you?
