    Professional recorder player and teacher Vicki Boeckman helps you learn to play ‘Tue Tue’ on the recorder using five notes D E F# A B.

    [Music playing]Vicki Boeckman: Hi I am Vicki Boeckman with the American Recorder Society. In this series, I am helping you learn how to play simple songs on the recorder. So today, we are going to learn Tue, Tue and we will continue with the same notes that you have learned so far. So the D, F sharp and A that tri-ad, we will use that. In this song, when you learn this, you can be in the world's largest concert. This is a really happy song, it's a Ghana, a Ghanese folk song and it incorporates just a lot of joy and a syncopated figure. So syncopation is when we have a short-long-short kind of a rhythm. So, it's going to sound like this. [Music Playing] And I say Tue-Tue, Tue-Tue, Tue-Tue, Tue-Tue, Tue-Tue-Tue, Tue-Tue-Tue, Tue-Tue, Tue-Tue. [Music Playing] So the first two lines are exactly the same, just repeat it. So once you have done that once, all you have to do is repeat it. Let's do that again. [Music Playing] And then the next little bit has this triad where we are leaping.

    [Music Playing]And then you have to rest and wait, and then the whole thing repeats again. So let me play the whole song for you.

    [Music Playing] And then wait, wait, wait, wait. [Music Playing] And now you have learned Tue, Tue and you can be in the world's largest concert.
