George the Giant Tortoise (1)
George will help you to practise your Crotchets (Quarter Notes) and Quavers (Eighth Notes), whilst making nice, smooooth string crossings!
Look for the patterns in the music - is the rhythm different from line to line, or is it the same?
Each time you need to move to a higher pitched note in lines 1 and 3, move your arm smoothly downwards to get to the next string.
Each time you need to move to a lower pitched note in lines 2 and 4, move your arm smoothly downwards to get to the next string.
Make sure you anticipate each string crossing... don't leave it too late!
