We've made it to the top space and line of the stave, homes to high(ish) E & F. It may be worth stopping to admire the view for a moment - including the high E & F, this is the range that you are now reading, hopefully without much difficulty -

Salisbury Plain

Another English folk song, Salisbury Plain. You might find it helpful to play through the notes without worrying about the rhythm first, just to reveal familiar patterns and possible surprises . . . . . there are some accidentals, for instance, but no reminders . . . .

Here's how the tune should have sounded (on C, Bb, Eb instruments).

More Note-Spotting

Another note spotting exercise, this time with some sharps and flats - for the purposes of this exercise, accidentals only apply to the note they're next to. As before, play it steadily, forwards, backwards, skipping notes, etc. There are one or two notes that you haven't read before, and notes that you have played but by a different name, but you should be able to work them out . . . . .

Puzzled? A# & Bb are the same notes by different names, as are F# & Gb, and C# & Db. If this isn't clear, go to toolkit2
