Of course, today we have a very (both) I N T E R E S T I N G 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...no—oh... - 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. Whoa!!! Now I know why no one plays the first Wieniawski concerto. (both) Ohhhh!!!!! - Oh! Mahler Symphony no. 2. - Mahler Symp— I think I played this a long time ago. - But I think I played the second violin, so... - Start at... This is first violin, right? - 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. Alright, alright... - That was warm up. - Yeah, yeah, that was warm up. Oh, I've done this before. No! *shriek* What the...what the f***... 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!!!! Dude that's too fast. - Yeah, it's forte as well, so the... - Yeah. Dude, it'll be like... Yeah. Okay, nah. Alright, last one. Oh, another Mahler. Bro! Symphony no. 10! - It's like not even legit. - No one plays it. Yeah...! For those that don't know, he died before number 10 finished. He did 9. Yeah. He sketched 10, and then someone tried to finish it. Bro! It goes on 6 sharps and 7 flats! Oh my god. Dude, it's so random. Dude... Whoa!!! - Dude, what is this? - Dude... The D flat and F... There's an F flat! *shriek* *shriek* *shriek* Bro, that's messed up. That's why no one plays it. - That's why Mahler's...died. - That's why Mahler died. He gave up, he was like, "I don't know where this is going. This is enough." Mahler's like, "Huh." "You guys are peasants." Alright guys, that's it. Musician struggles, particularly orchestral musician struggles. Sigh. Sigh. Gotta practice sight-reading. If you're in orchestra, - you know what this feels like. - Yeah. We know what you're doing.
