You can now try playing these tunes, which use all you have learnt so far.
The first tune is a traditional folk song called Aura Lee
, but you will probably recognise it as the beginning of 'Love Me Tender' by Elvis!
It has been simplified for the purposes of this lesson, but better and fuller versions of these tunes, and many, many others can be found later in the course.
also backing tracks provided that you can play along to. Click HERE to see an example.
Again, use the audio to help you get used to the timing and the notes, then try playing it yourself.
Remember to start with your right hand thumb on Middle C, and use the correct finger for each note
