The girls are now practicing a duet. The name of the song is 'Skateboard Doodle' , which is actually the tune of 'Yankee Doodle'. The pianist will be playing on the Grand Staff - they call it. Both hands, one treble clef and one bass. Piano always freaked me out but I love to listen to piano and always wished I could play. The guitarist will be playing along starting with C chord, changing to G, back to C, then F, G and back to C - all major chords. Guitar is pretty complicated, too.
For now the little one is just practicing going from C to G and back again, over and over. It takes her several seconds to change up the fingers on the neck. I figure just practicing going back and forth over and over might help with that. She remembers all of the major chords, though and quite a lot of the minor ones.
So far they sound
like they need lots more practice. They are preparing to play their duet for the residents of an old folks home. We want it to sound nice for them.
