  • Welcome to part three of the Fur Elise piano tutorial today we're learning a part that

  • sounds like this and

  • from there it goes on from there but we're just learning that first part so it's a

  • little bit tricky to teach this so I actually think I want to break it down into the right

  • hand and the left hand I don't usually do this but I think that for this section it

  • makes sense so what your right hand is doing is playing an E and a C and you can follow

  • along with the music you see that's like the first you're playing it like a chord and you're

  • immediately going to move you thumb up to an F so you're playing an F and a C and then

  • you're going to move your thumb back to that E and you're going to move - it's like you're

  • splitting this and you're going to play a G add a G so the first three chords in your

  • right hand and your pinky stays always on the C and your right thumb is going E and

  • you two is going to play an F and then you're going to split and play an E and a G and you're

  • always playing that pinky so like this alright now the next thing you are going to do is this little roll and it's kind of like

  • you're playing an F chord an F major chord so F A and C but really the key is this C

  • you're rolling these other two notes really fast they are really fast grace notes so practice

  • just rolling so that you're just basically really quickly touching that F and that A

  • before ending on this C okay? so the first four things alright then you're going to jump

  • up to this F up here and I think the best way to here this rhythm is to sort of imagine

  • that you're singing it so you can actually sing that because that will help you get the rhythm

  • so anyway you jump into that F and then you are going to play two E's right after F E

  • E D and you immediately jump up to this B flat B flat A A so B flat and two As so let

  • me just show what this little run this next run sounds like

  • so it's mostly just walking down kind of like a scale here so just practice this the first

  • part is the only little like hiccup B flat A B flat and A and then basically starting

  • from A you're going to kind of go down and you're going to play all white notes except

  • you're going to play B flats instead of B A G F E D C B flat A so nice and fast so play

  • just that into it's sort of nice and smooth right and I don't really care what fingering

  • you use I'm doing like three to three again so I'm kind of like switching every three

  • and I start this A with three because the next part you're going to want to have your

  • three here anyway so you've just played that run then you've got this little grace note

  • again but I'm just going to show you the part after the grace note and well add the grace

  • note at the end so that part you're playing after is like a faster which is just A G A

  • B flat C and the way you add that little grace note is before you get to that A you play

  • this B flat really fast you see that? so you can go like this B flat to the A grace note

  • and then G A B flat C so you can just practice doing that little thing okay and after that

  • you kind of hold onto that C for a while and then you're going to walk up from D to D sharp

  • E that's really pretty nice okay and then you've got these three notes actually four

  • notes E F A C and then D B and then the next part C and just make sure you play that C

  • with your two so you start this D with your three finger D B C 1 2 3 1 and then the next

  • part comes after that so that's the right hand I'm going to show you the left hand and

  • then I'm going to try and slowly bring it together and this is just going to take some

  • practice that just sort of how it goes but so you've got this so while we're starting

  • this thing and I just showed you that right hand was doing this and what your left hand

  • is doing while your right hand is doing that is you've got B flat and C this B flat drops

  • down to an A so you've got A and C and then this A sort of - I think of it as splitting

  • so you've got G B flat and C in your left hand so the first three chords and if you're

  • thinking ahead you can probably already see that that's going to fit nicely together with

  • this you can practice that later we're not going to get too much into that just yet so

  • your left hand continues from this and you're basically kind of playing - think about playing

  • an F major chord remember with that run I was saying think about an F chord your left

  • hand is also thinking about an F chord you're outlining that F chord you're arpeggiating

  • the left chord right so you've got F A and C in your left hand that you're playing bottom

  • middle top middle top middle that's the first measure okay and that bottom middle top middle

  • top middle is kind of a common pattern that you're going to see throughout this piece

  • alright? so bottom middle top middle top middle and then these two top notes are going to

  • basically kind of slide up a little bit so to the B flat and the D and you're still going

  • to do the same pattern so watch as I switch between the first two measures now everything

  • slides up okay the next measure is going to be your going to play that F again and you're

  • going to jump up not quite to the F but to the E sounds a little harsh right and you're

  • going to play one F one E and then you're going to come down here and you're going to

  • play these notes an F a G and a B flat okay and you're going to switch between that E

  • kind of like this so you might just practice doing that because it is actually kind of

  • hard on your hand to do that so you've got F - let me back up and show you a quick review

  • of the left hand because it is a little bit tricky B flat and C A and C G B flat and C

  • then you've got this arpeggiated F chord and then you slide everything up and then you're

  • going to jump to this E and then alternate between this chord okay and then back to that

  • F chord okay now the cool thing is you've just played - after this little you play this

  • F chord arpeggiated and you do it for two measures in a row now the next part you're

  • going to slide the pinky down one white note to an E and you're going to go up here to

  • this A and the C kind of like from before back to the A now this time you're going to

  • split your hand and you get octave Ds I'm going to move my fingers out of the way but

  • really you're gong to want to have them up like this octave Ds and then you're going

  • to want to grab an F and move right up to a G okay now once you get to that G you're

  • going to be alternating G E G F G F and you're going to end on this little C and E chord

  • G E G F G F chord C and E now I know I'm throwing a lot at you and it's tough I think maybe

  • you'll want to pause the video and make sure you get one part at a time I'm going to show

  • you a review and I'm going to this really slowly with both hands at the same time and

  • then I'm going to ask you to practice this is just going to take some effort okay so

  • the first thing you do is you've got these like set of chords that sets up this section

  • so B flat and C in your left hand E and C in your right hand and by the way for this

  • part especially sing along it's going to help you out a ton first three chords and you've

  • got this like F that you're outlining and remember this is like that and you get to this B flat

  • and you're back into Fs with this chord and you're going to do a little quick trill here

  • and then this gets fast the walk up from the D and then you're going to slide this down

  • to this E here now you split to Ds so you see what's cool there you've got F in here

  • when you get these Ds down here and you're going to jump to A here while this is hitting

  • the F that's probably one of the hardest parts this F A C in your right hand and D F G is

  • weird here so practice this part together up to the E immediately expand to the F and

  • you'll notice I play it kind of comes after - this D that you're playing in your right

  • hand while you're playing this G in your left hand and you play an F B C and right when

  • you hit that C you're going to play this chord so let me just play that part together for

  • you sort of medium speed and try and be really clear about each part and then you've got

  • to practice F chord B flat trill here's the hard part okay that's the part it will be

  • a little bit faster than that when you get comfortable but that's pretty much it take

  • your time figure it out you can definitely do this this is the hardest part after this

  • it's a lot of recycled parts it gets easier alright so that's the tutorial I really hope

  • it helped you don't forget to like comment and subscribe and I'll see you next time
