down and out introduction 1
Down and OutINTRODUCTION (1)

Start with the bassline and play it twice on its own

These 5 lines are called a “stave”

The notes and stave are a musical code, telling you what to play

Remember what this curvy sign means? Check the Keyboard sheet if you have forgotten

Here are the notes on the piano

Bb means “B flat” - the black note just below B

Ab means “A flat” – the black note just below A

CBbAbG

Down and OutINTRODUCTION (2)

Now add some chords in your right hand

Don’t forget to keep the bassline going. Play the chord and bassline twice

Remember what this swirly sign means? Check the Keyboard sheet if you have forgotten

These 3 funny sort of b’s are the “Key Signature”. They mean that whenever you see the notes they are showing, you have to play a flat – for the whole tune.

You can work out from the Keyboard sheet that those notes are B, E and A. So whenever you see a B, make sure you play a Bb (B flat). Whenever you see an E it needs to be an Eb, and whenever you see an A it needs to be an Ab.

Do you remember what “flat” means? If you’ve forgotten then have another look at the Introduction (1) sheet.

“Chords” are lots of notes at once

You write them as several notes on top of each other

Here are the notes you need to play for the chord written above. You can check this on the Keyboard sheet.

down and out verse 1
Down and OutVERSE (1)

The verse is the same as the introduction. Play the chord and bassline four times

Add this tune (at the same time as the chords and bassline)

You know how the tune goes. You know the rhythm. See if you can use what you know to work out what the dots and circles mean. They are to do with how long to play each note.

You can be a detective to work out what to play. It’s a “treble clef” and high on the stave, so you know it’s going to be quite high. Have a look at the Keyboard sheet and see if you can figure this out.

down and out verse 2
Down and OutVERSE (2)

Now you need to change the chord, bassline and tune

Here’s a challenge for you. Use everything you know so far to work out what to play here. The 3 lines are the tune, the chords and the bassline.

Don’t panic. Don’t give up. You’ve got a lot of things to help you.

You have the all the sheets so far, to help you work out what notes these represent.

You know that whenever you see a B, E or A you need to play Bb, Eb and Ab.

You don’t know what the dots and circles mean yet, but you do know how the song goes, so you know that a circle is a long note and a dot is shorter.

You may even remember some of this from the lesson.

So see if you can work this out.

down and out verse 3
Down and OutVERSE (3)

The final part of the verse is similar to what you just played, but for the end you need to change the chord, bassline and tune again

You’ve done the difficult bit. See if you can work out this last bit, or you may remember it from the lesson.

There are 2 new symbols here.

The funny diagonal looking sign is called a “natural” and it cancels out the flat. So it means that you play a note B, not a Bb. Try both and you’ll hear which one fits better.

Don’t worry about the funny 3 sign in the tune. Just play what you know.

Now play the whole thing again
