2 - Playing using both hands
In the second lesson, Mr. Majed starts explaining how to position and play using the left hand. Now, after practicing how to play using the right hand in lesson number one, Mr. Majed will move on to playing using both hands.
Welcome to i3zif.com, my name is Majed Srour. Today we will start the second lesson of learning the Zither, and keep in mind, you will learn. Today we will start with the left hand position, which is exactly as we explained with the right hand, but we will see it now to make sure. It is the same movement, we place our hand like this, then form it like this, like we are holding a tennis ball. Generally this is popular with teaching most instruments, like the piano the same thing, your hand is arched like you are holding a ball, like an arch. Movement starts from here, you finger goes up and down with maximum force. Because at the beginning the purpose is not to play, it is to shatter the cord, to break it, with maximum force. Let us see how *Play music*. we learn force so that when you have a strong finger, you can play strong tracks and warm or weak tracks , if you have strength you have weakness as well. Now we will start including our right hand with the left hand, we were playing with our left hand on Re cord, which is the fifth cord, we start from Sol La Si Do Re, and we look for the similar Re on the highest Octave. Octave means the end of the scale; if we start the scale from Re, it will be Re Mi Fa Sol La Si Do Re. as you know the musical scale is 7 notes, and you repeat them, while the pitch gets higher. Here we were in the very low pitch, very, Re, and now we will play the similar Re on the Octave, the higher pitch as agreed, in our other hand *Play music* now we will do the same exercise we did with one hand, but in both hands *Play music* now we will play the exercise where we learned the rhythm Ta Fa Ti Fi, as we said 4 strikes Ta Fa Ti Fi, we will play it four times *Play music*. As we said, with maximum force we will find that both notes melted into one another, we can’t tell them apart, they are one sound, all because of the strength of your strike. Once we finish this subject we move on the next one, which is transfer, we were playing Re, now we play Mi Fa and so on. With the same method, we play the rhythm Ta Fa Ti Fi, 4 strikes, 4 times, we will play the Re, Mi, Fa, Sol all the way to the high Re. let us listen to this.
