Piano – Greensleeves

Jumped around a bit today but focused on patterns with three fingers to help reinforce melody and fingering for chords. It’s sunny here and the fingering is light for this classic English song. We’re not interested in the lyrics and meaning, it’s a beautiful melody for piano, harp, flute, violin, guitar as well as the song. I think I learnt this on piano as a child too.

Someone was in the room where I did the lesson and said we helped him sleep 🙂

We’re hopefully going to try a beautiful Russian love song soon which is also from Soviet Union originally.
