Recorder Ensemble -- Deconstructing "Pretty Saro"
Hi Recorder Cats -- One of the songs we will be doing for our spring Concert in the Park is the beautiful Appalachian folk tune "Pretty Saro." Like many songs the basic melody is 4 lines long with each line having two parts or "phrases." The best way to learn it and practice it is one phrases at a time, so that's how I'm going to publish it here. As you listen to the audio, try to get used to reading the notes as well. You'll need to use the high "E" we just learned -- you can go back to the video lesson I posted last week. The rest of the notes you know.
