Imperial March / Darth Vader’s Theme (Duet) – STAR WARS ON RECORDER

Imperial March / Darth Vader’s Theme (Duet) – STAR WARS ON RECORDER

February 22, 2020 0 By Kailee Schamberger


What’s up guys! My name is Mr. Erdoğan. You’re watching Music With Mr. Erdoğan! Today I’m wearing my Star Wars
t-shirt so that must mean only one thing!? We’re about to learn some Star Wars on
the recorder! Alright guys that was the entire version
of Imperial March. Now I’ve arranged this version of Imperial March for you and a
buddy to be able to play this at the same time. Some parts are exactly the
same for both you and your buddy, but there’s gonna be other parts where one
person is gonna be playing one thing and the other person is gonna be playing
something completely different. So it’s gonna be kind of like a duet. Now you may
have noticed while you’re watching the intro at the bottom of the screen
there’s three different main parts: Part A, Part B, and Part C. Now what we’re
looking at here is Part A. Now Part A I’ve broken up into four different parts
Part A-1, Part A-2, Part A-3, and Part A-4 A-1 is the easiest and the shortest. A-2 is also pretty easy and short. And then A-3 and A-4 are very similar, but they’re
a little bit longer and a little bit more tricky. So for now we’re just
focusing on Part A, but we’ll also have to learn Part B and Part C as well. And
to help keep you on track I’m gonna have this little achievement chart down at
the bottom so you’ll be able to see what part we’re on, and what part we’ve finished. OK.. Enough talking! Let’s get started with Part A-1. Now don’t forget to look over
to the right side of the screen if you’re having difficulty remembering how
to play the notes. Let’s try that again a little bit faster
this time. And again at full speed. Okay now let’s switch to Part A-2, and
play it at a slower speed. Once again a bit faster this time Now let’s put Part A-1 and A-2 together. And now again at full speed Now let’s try Part A-3. Now remember Part A-3 and A-4 are very similar, but they’re very difficult in comparison to A-1 and A-2, so you’ll have to pay
close attention to sharps and flats and the timing of each of the notes. Now let’s try that again a little bit
faster and this time I’m going to open up part A-4 and so we’ll play them
together at the same time just because the only real difference between Part A-3
and A-4 is the last two bars, the rest of it is exactly the same. Once again a little bit faster this time
and this time we’ll bring back Part A-1 and A-2 And now full speed. now if you’ve gotten this far and you’ve figured out how to play all of Part A, pat yourself on the back
because this is the most iconic part of the song, and this is the most recognizable
part of the song, and playing THIS part for your friends is the part that’s
going to impress them. Now we can cross off Part A on our achievement list. Now if you want to stop at this point in the video I wouldn’t blame you, but if
you’re the type of person to really want to learn the entire song keep going and
learn Part B and Part C. Okay so this isit for Part B. It’s not that long and probably not that difficult to learn. The hardest part about Part B is going to be the eighth rests at the beginning of every single bar so you’re gonna be
starting every single bar on the upbeat not the downbeat and that’s gonna be a
little bit difficult for you to get used to playing if it’s new to you. Another
tricky thing about Part B is that it’s supposed to be played in the background
by one player while the other player is playing something completely different
so this is really where the two recorders split off and start playing
different things. Okay let’s give it a try nice and slow. and again this time a bit faster And
even faster. And now let’s do it at full speed. Okay so for now able to play that at full speed we’re now ready to move on to Part C. Let’s cross off Part B from our achievement chart. Darth Vader: “You have failed me for
the last time” okay here is Part C, the final part that we need for Imperial March Now I still have Part B there at the top of the screen because we’re
gonna need to use that in a few seconds, but Part C is split up into three major
chunks and you may actually notice that each of those chunks is very similar to
a part from Part A. So Part C-1 is actually very similar to Part A-1. Part
C-2 is actually very similar to Part A-2. And Part C-3 is kind of a mix of
Part A-3 and 4. And so now you can see why I named each of the parts the way I did because there’s actually a lot of repetition and it’ll help you understand
all the similarities between each of the parts. Okay so if you’ve done a good job
of already learning Part A, Part C will really be a breeze.
So let’s start by playing all of Part C without any of Part B, and then later on
we’ll bring in Part B as well. We’re gonna slow it down a little bit but not too slow because playing those long notes will be way too difficult if we
slow it down too much. Okay this time we’re gonna do the same
thing except now I’m gonna turn Part B back on, and we’re gonna split into our
separate parts. Okay now I’m going to do one round of
Part B together then split into Part B and C. Okay and if you’re doing all right so
far now it’s time to bring it up back to full speed. And once again we’re starting
with just Part C. And now B and C, just like before And just like before, one round of B, then splitting off into B and C separately. All right, we just smashed Part C. Now
it’s time to see if we can do the whole thing! Alright guys that’s it for today! Now if
you had any difficulty, as usual, just go back and rewind the video, watch it as
