  • Of course, today we have a very

  • video,

  • sight-reading the worst possible key signatures.

  • Before we get started,

  • if you enjoyed this 10-second segment,

  • accent the like button right now.

  • So what we're gonna do is

  • 5 level of difficulties in sight-reading.

  • Each one has...

  • ...messed up key signatures,

  • which if you're not a musician,

  • it's the bane of existence of trying to read and play.

  • The rules are as always,

  • if you play a wrong note...

  • ...you're gone.

  • Got the triangle of death waiting.

  • One wrong note and...

  • I N T E R E S T I N G !

  • Oh my god!

  • Okay, how many is it? 5 flats?

  • 6 flats. 1, 2, 3—

  • Oh my god.

  • Dude, there's a C flat!

  • Oi, you're not allowed to read!

  • - You gotta go! - I'm just gonna go.

  • - Oh yeah, you gotta go! - That's cheating!

  • Alright, here we go.

  • Is that too fast?

  • Think it's alright.

  • This is level 1.

  • You drooled!

  • Dude, that was distracting...!

  • I got you!

  • - No! - It was a distraction tactic!

  • Dude, I was just like,

  • "Are you f***ing serious?"

  • - E double flat! - You drooled, you gotta clean that up.

  • I can see the droplets on the ground!

  • That was an ultimate distraction.

  • Oh, sorry. I just...

  • Wha...

  • You played an E double flat, but it wasn't.

  • It was just a normal E flat!

  • *sigh*

  • Oh!!!

  • Chopin Nocturne. Alright.

  • Let's go "Cho-pin" guys.

  • Oh my god.

  • 6 sharps! What's that?

  • F sharp...major!

  • Dude, that's crazy.

  • - No! That— - No, it's just out of tune!

  • No...!

  • - I was right! - Okay, okay, okay.

  • What...I played the right note!

  • Okay.

  • Whoa!

  • Why wouldn't you just write that in G flat major?

  • Hey guys I'm winning,

  • even though I messed up my rhythm.

  • But that don't matter.

  • 6 flats!

  • - I N T E R E S T I N G ! - Oh, what's this?

  • - What? - You forgot your mute.

  • Oh, s***.

  • Oh, s***.

  • Mmm...!

  • - There's more. - Oh, oh.

  • But that was easy, because I kind of knew it.

  • We haven't played it before.

  • - Have you played it? Yeah...but I've heard it before. - I've never played it, I've never played it.

  • Oh my god, that's not fair.

  • Haydn Symphony in F sharp!

  • - What is with F sharp?! - For "Farewell"!

  • - F sharp for "Farewell"! - I'm sick of F sharp!

  • Whoa...!

  • What...? That...dude, your rhythm...!

  • That was not what...

  • I was just like,

  • "Just get the notes."

  • You put three bars into one bar.

  • Oh, I get sharps...nooh...

  • - GG. - 1, 2, 3, 4, 5...

  • Oh my god.

  • Alright, you better not mess up, bro.

  • Ohh!!!!

  • We humans have such incredible potential

  • in our subconscious[ness].

  • It just needs the right...

  • - ...circumstance to bring it out, right? - Yeah, that's true, that's true.

  • So you gotta imagine,

  • you're in a jungle.

  • And um, a bunch of violists and bassists have uh,

  • got all your friends and family captive.

  • Free the family from the viola restraints.

  • My rhythm's gone...!

  • If you play it wrong,

  • - your whole family dies to the violists, and bassists. - Ohh! 4/4!

  • 1, 2!

  • 3! Is that 4? Yeah!

  • Oh, animato, 3, 4!

  • Argh!

  • - They die. - No!

  • Nah, nah, nah!

  • - Alright. - Play a wrong note,

  • you die.

  • I'm dead.

  • This is for the musicians

  • that have suffered in orchestra.

  • I will channel all your sight-reading powers!

  • - No, no, you start at A. - Nah, I don't care.

  • - Why...? - I need to warm up into it.

  • Repeat!

  • What?

  • It was just out of tune!

  • Ooh!

  • Dude, that was C natural!

  • - I played C natural! - 'Cause I heard C sharp! Eh?

  • No.

  • - Alright. - Am I just out of tune?

  • Oh, okay.

  • Oh, that was right.

  • That's a bad fingering.

  • Yeah, okay.

  • Forgiven!

  • 'Cause it's E flat major.

  • Level 4! Ay!

  • How fast is this?

  • Largamente.

  • Sorry.

  • You missed the diminuendo.

  • Oh.

  • Oh!!!

  • Great musicians sight-read with dynamics!

  • It's all on G string!

  • That's right!

  • Oh.

  • Yeah!

  • Dude, that's messed up.

  • That's nice of them,

  • putting an open string there.

  • - Well, it's too hard to be second. - Yeah...

  • Yeah...!

  • I wanna start earlier to warm up.

  • Let's go!

  • Agh!

  • Dude, I just couldn't play in tune!

  • Nah, it didn't count.

  • - That was warm up. - Yeah, yeah, that was warm up.

  • Oh, I've done this before.

  • No!

  • *shriek*

  • It's meant to be A flat.

  • - I messed that up. - Good effort.

  • I think I messed up. Oh well.

  • Oh my god!

  • Dude, it's not only just 6 flats,

  • - it's like you can't read it. - You can't read it.

  • - Alright, bring it on. - Look like ants, man.

  • Shostakovich, I hate you!

  • Am I doing the right notes?

  • Wait, bro, look at the dynamic.

  • Crotchet's 80.

  • Ahh!!!!
