Flapping Fifths 3

We've already brought in quavers to make the left hand rhythms more exciting - and challenging!

Here are some more with-quaver rhythmic options, starting with LH5 held down (hence the 'Flapping Quavers).

Flapping Quavers 1

The tapping video video rehearses only the left hand thumb - the quaver rhythm. Holding LH5 down makes little difference.

If you play attention in detail to the third line, there won't be anything in the arrangement you can't play. Use this slo-mo practice video.

Flapping Quavers 2

Using only the second of those second-beat quavers gives a Latin feel.

NOT

Here is the tapping video and the first line TLR analysis.

(NB: The tapping MS left hand combines versions 2 and 3.)

NOT

Practice the third line conscientiously.

Flapping Quavers 3

Combining the Latin beat with the fifth-root-fifth left hand from 'Harmonising with Thirds' gives us this variation.

The tapping pattern for Flapping Quavers 3 is the same as for Flapping Quavers 2 (above) - only one left hand note per bar is different.

Practice Line Three using this practice-speed demo.
