Plus we're going to be applying to diminish the diminished 7 and the augmented to a. So let's start by playing a wide major. Here it is. And we were in this chord. We played it in the intermediate section and the bass section pretty well. Now we're going to take the last up and take it step down to G sharp. So the notes are going to be a C-sharp sharp G sharp and there we go. That is going to be a seven major or known as a seven plus. So this is the first variation I'm going to get up to see sharp C Sharp E G sharp. Pull it up again to G sharp a C sharp sharp a C sharp and a C sharp B G sharp. I'm going to play this go down to G sharp down to E down a C sharp and down to a excellent place with the right hand and so on. Well if you're really this far in advance section you should already know these chords familiarly. You should already be playing it pretty well. So play this out with the right hand until you know one octave no going to move on to the left hand so going to play it from a moved up to C-Sharp it up to the G sharp and a smooth and down from a G sharp to B C Sharp and a again only one the left hand and the right hand know it pretty well separately. Now combine the hands to play this a seven plus excellent once you could play it out with one octave with both hands. Now I'm going to go twenty five times four octaves. Excellent. That was the first exercise of this video. Now you get to go to our second exercise which is going to be a diminished that is a diminished. And what we're going to do is we're going to play this and move it up to one octave and down with the right hand so notes are going to be a C E flat. Move it up to see E flat A E flat A C and then to a C B flat. Now let's go down from a to E-flat to C and again. So play one or two with the right hand so you know fairly well. Now we're going to move onto the left hand plane from a to c to E-flat and then it's a notes go down from a to E-flat to C and a excellent Once the left and the right hand are fairly confidently playing essentially. Now I'm going to combine hands and played a diminished once we can play one octave with a diminished our We're going to go four octaves 25 times so we know pretty well. Excellent. Now the second exercise I'm going to move to the third exercise where we play a diminished seventh. This is where we are not just like the diminished in this case it's going to be that F sharp or the G flat notes are going to be a C E flat and F sharp. Play those. Move it up to C C E flat F sharp a move it up again to E flat at Sharp A C move it up again to F sharp A C E-flat and lastly to a C E flat and sharp. Now we're going to move it down to F sharp over again to E-flat down C and A Excellent move onto the left hand. Play it from a to z E-flat and a now going to go down from a F sharp E-flat to C and A. Excellent once you could play it with the left and the right hand pretty well that's combined hands. Play a diminished seven once you play one octave with both hands. Now I'm going to go 25 times four octaves. Very good. Now let's move on to our last exercise of this video which is going to be the augmented. This is where we take the A C Sharp and the f. So we're going to play this chord. Move it up to C-Sharp and a moved up to a and c sharp. And then lastly to a C sharp enough move it down from a C sharp enough to ask a C sharp C Sharp as a a c sharp at once you can play it with the right hand pretty well. Now we can to move on to the left hand plane the same exact note starting from a C sharp and moving up C sharp to F A. Now we're going to go down from a to s to see sharp and time. Well Rondo's well. Well pausa if you need to so you can know the notes really well know how to combine the hands and play one octave of a augmented excellent does one octave. Once you know on Octave confidently. Now we're going to go four octaves twenty times that is for the advanced course. We have done that a seven measure we have done. A diminished a diminished. And the augmented. Thanks for watching. And let's move on to the next video.
