Performance Medleys 1

Once you've got some different accompaniment rhythms and crossed-hand playing under your belt, you can put together medley performances like these.

First - if it's been a while - get your basics back in condition with this fast-track build-up.

And on you go.

Snake Dance Variations - Medley One

If you don't 'get it' in two or three goes, do the sensible thing and rehearse the rhythms separately.

 Line One, Phrase One

 Line One, Phrase Two

 Line One combined

 Line Three phrases

 Second half

The left hand in the second half is the same as in the final build-up performance, but the little finger (LH5) makes a point of staying down for the whole bar.



Snake Dance Variations - Medley Two

The left hand plays 'off the beat'.

Rehearse the hand patterns until they feel natural and stress-free.

 Line One, Phrase One

 Line One, Phrase Two

 Line One combined

 Line Three phrases

 Second half

The left hand in the second half has a two-bar pattern - two short, one long. Practice the phrases/lines separately as required.
