Constance - Make tea, not war: all your bass

I've learned to play "Oh Come All Ye Faithful"! It's like my favorite song ever! And it wasn't hard... The arrangements I saw online were too difficult for me, but I just want to learn the basic melody, and now I have. So I'm excited about it. I also like "We Wish You a Merry Christmas"and also learned that.

I need a musical advice now... How do you play notes of different durations in the left hand and right hand. E.g. the right hand plays dotted quarter note, eighth, quarter note, and the left hand plays three quarter notes[1]... I just can't manage that; it breaks my sense of rhythm. I can do the left hand or the right hand on their own okay, but combining is hard. Let me know if you have any tips.

[1] Picture is worth a thousand words, so here's an excerpt from the song that shows what I mean:

Oh and one more thing! When you're first learning, it might help just to focus on tapping the rhythm out on the top of the piano, so you're not focusing so much on notes. Count it out and tap whichever hand(s) have notes to play.


in snape we trust

Thank you! Sounds like a good advice! :)
