I guess welcome back to another trip

down to turbo camp Lancome and today

we're going to play the Entertainer I'm

going to start by playing the melody and

then I'm going to show you what to do

with the chords and how exactly to play

them with the left hand

finally we're going to combine them both

together it's going to be a blast it's a

really nice song okay so let's go the

Entertainer okay so we start with the

melody right away and then we'll sing

the note names as well sometimes I won't

have enough time to sing f-sharp so I

will say fizz instead and instead of

singing b-flat I will sing best so we

start with the intro it's pretty easy

you play the e C a B G same octave lower

Dec a BG and an octave lower Dec a and

this time be a flat G and you'll end up

with a g7 chord G and F in the left hand

and B D G in the right hand bum and then

we go to the verse what I'm going to do

first is sing the melody and the melody

notes of the right hand before we go to

the left hand so it goes like this
