"My name is Paul Sandberg; I'm an actor, singer and teacher in the New York City Area. For more information please visit my website at ""Hark, how the bells Sweet silver bells all seem to say, ""Throw cares away."" Christmas is here Bringing good cheer To young and old Meek and the bold Ding, dongy, dong That is their song With joyful ring All caroling One seems to hear Words of good cheer From everywhere Filling the air Oh how they pound, Raising the sound, O'er hill and dale, Telling their tale, Gaily they ring While people sing Songs of good cheer Christmas is here Merry, merry, merry, merry Christmas Merry, merry, merry, merry Christmas On, on they send On without end Their tremble tone To every home On, on they send on without end their tremble tone to every hoooome. That was Carol of the bells. you don't often hear it?, Arrange in a solo setting, generally it's in a large choir or chorus and makes it a big easier, because you're not required to sing every single line on your arm. But it works, you can easily do this. And playing in the piano is actually easier than it seems too. Because your hands start together and then left is coming merges away from the right hand, while the right basically plays the same melody to the entire song. So starting at the beginning your right hand is playing on the B'flat playing this nice reparative melody ""Pum para pum, Pum para pum, Pum para pum"". And you just walk down the left hand which starts on G here. Going in a fur tier and then down. And on this second system, you're just rocking back of course between,""Brum, Brum, brum, brum""; all the while your right hand is keeping the same melody, Until we hit the scales. So that takes a little bit of practice. Take a look at it. This is on the Merry, Merry, merry, merry Christmas part. Starting with your right hand you're the thumb one finger on the D followed up the scale until you get to the third finger which is going to be on ""F Sharp"". Here you want a tuck underneath that. So one, your thumb is going to go underneath the to play that""G""and that allows you to continue that scale, looking at that little bit faster, this is at merry, merry., Again, putting back with the left hand there. And putting back all these together we have the full song. And on the half chance that you are not a huge fan or singing yourself, this song works really well with the piano. This was a really good experience transcribing which is related with music Hope i done well to your expectations, If yes kindly accept this."
