Hello , everybody .
This is my , you know , I , when I first I , I believe one of my first , uh , lessons that I uploaded was uh hand and exercise number one and that was very popular .
And so I decided to , um , show you hand and exercise number two .
Very easy .
And more importantly , I'm gonna show you how you should practice once you've mastered and , and exercise .
Number one and number two , how you're supposed to practice it .
You're supposed to play one , you just alternate between one and two , you do it , but you repeat it four times and this isn't about speed now , I'll increase my speed because I don't want this video to be too long .
But , but I'm gonna start it off very slowly .
First of all , and start just uh one octave .
Well , lower poverty .
This is middle C , two octaves below middle C .
This is middle C me on my piano .
So this is two Os left hand , this is I'm gonna shoot a right hand finger in .
Here's the pattern very easy .
And of course , you know , your finger numbers 12345 .
So you start with C and it's like this .
No getting a piece with some excuse .
So it's like a one you skip , use your second finger to that ec vibes and that , see , I'll repeat it .
You see it , sorry .
Just depend is the right hand .
Now we can each other this big watch what happens including two and three in .
But again , it's not about speech , it's about taking it slowly .
Now once you get to this be , remember , that's when you got , once you play this beat , you're getting ready to turn around .
Good thing out there leaping four steps to the d when you're alternating between the 2nd and 3rd .
See that is slowing down .
So , ok .
Now the left hand , this one , when you're gonna do uh 53 , 53 up to that .
A OK .
Now , I'm sorry , I have forgotten .
Wait a minute and , and then you also between two and three in the left hand .
Yeah , that when you come down , let me check this out this quick .
Here you go , 135 , just skipping that for him , of friends .
Of course , when you combine them , you're using different things , but you just have to practice each hand separately slowly .
And , uh , let me see if I can do it .
Now , see , I'm , I'm trying to save time .
But really , you should practice a , your fingers .
It's hard to play slow and you figure , see when you're ascending on the , uh I believe from writing the , you're working , alternating between the 3rd and 4th finger , alternating between the 2nd and 3rd finger and , and when you return it , you're using descending , you working the 4th , 3rd and 4th finger in the left hand in the 2nd and 3rd finger in the right hand .
So you take da da , da , da , da , da da because that fourth finger and the fifth finger share one tendon .
So it's gonna be a little awkward .
So you have to play it slow enough .
Always remember the first three fingers of your hand of your hand are the strongest because they had their own separate tendon where in 4th and 5th thing , if they share one tendon , that's why it's a little awkward .
And so these hand and exercise are designed for that to develop that .
Now , this is how you're gonna practice exercise one and two together .
I'm gonna play one , then I'm immediately gonna go into two .
Once I demish you , I'll go back to one .
When you go into 21212 .
You're supposed to do this four times again , people , it's not about speed , it's about , you know , a , a slow , smooth tempo .
So here's a demonstration .
I'm not gonna do it four times , but I'm , I'm , I'm gonna do it one time .
But , uh , uh , you , you , this is how you should practice it .
At a very comfortable temper .
But for the second time again , I'm gonna pick it up , but I , I don't practice .
We normally I practice , gonna get into the keys .
You gonna dig it out .
No one cares about that spot .
This is hand in exercise .
One , I'm immediately going to two and this is how you should practice it .
So it's ok .
One , then I'm gonna go into two .
Here's one .
Chia are messed up .
See , I don't know , add and exercise and I've been doing this all my life too .
It's that skip .
So you know what the problem is ?
It's my left hand .
I'm gonna isolate the problem because I had to work with those , that third or fourth finger De Cindy .
So I was fine .
So I , that , that told me immediately that I'm taking it too fast .
So I'm gonna have to slow it down back and right .
But let's focus on my left hand that 34 is messing with me .
So I'm gonna hold , I have to check that thing is that thing ain't right .
I'm not sure I'm doing it right .
135 to fire .
There it is .
I was doing two .
The problem has to go wrong .
Third thing , one and alternation between that 3rd and 4th .
See , that's what you're supposed to do when you're doing your own practice .
Whenever you run into a problem , don't just brush it aside , tackle it , focus in on it .
So , in hand and exercise number two , I would really focus in on that left hand descending because you're , you're using 3rd and 4th fingers .
But when you ask Cindy you , uh , it's easy because you're only gonna use , uh , you're using your , um , let me check with you .
Make sure I have it right for you .
You're using your , uh , is it using two and three as Cindy ?
And , and there again , they're strong slopper .
Now that I've warmed up , which I should have done .
But anyway , to let you know how important these exercises are , I mean , and I , I've been doing this for all my life , but still , if you don't do it every day , you lose it .
So , uh , but that doesn't have anything .
So , anyway , here , I mean , what you practice , but just do that .
Ok , now that I've been warmed up , I'm gonna demonstrate how to practice again .
Once you've mastered one and mastered two at a comfortable speed , you combine both without stopping and you do this four times .
So this means that you're gonna be sitting around at the piano for like five or 10 minutes or 20 minutes , depending upon the speed .
So , here we go again .
I'm gonna try it again .
Ok , here we go .
I'm gonna play one .
Then I'm gonna go into two .
Here's one .
Now , what you realize is this , I only did that but 2 , 2.5 times , whatever , but I could feel tension in my arms because I was taking it too fast .
But just do that every day , just do hand and exercise at a comfortable speed .
Remember when you're coming down , pretend that I'm coming down that I'm listening .
Keeping strict tempo ?
And go email me back .
Let me know if it helps .
It should .
And I'll see you the next time .
Bye bye but .
