Continuing on where we left out with our Beginner's Waltz in C major.

This time we will are adding the linear single note pattern - G, A, B which takes us back to the C - to the G major chord that happens after the D major chord in the song. Two things are important to notice in this lesson.

First, we only play the basic left hand pattern of the G major 1 time this time around before switching to the linear single note pattern - G, A, B.

Second, it is a little more tricky because we are also playing notes on every beat with our right hand. And further the right hand notes are descending (going down in pitch) while the left hand notes are ascending (going up in pitch)!

Take your time to practice this bit until you've got in completely under your grasp.
