sight singing practice in C major
Today's lesson is sight singing practice with "You Are My Sunshine". It is in the key of C major and notated in the treble (G) clef in 4/4 time. If you tried to notate it yourself, you may have run into a problem in the first phrase. That is because there is a note in the melody that is not in the C major scale. This is called an accidental. On the words "my only sunshine" the E becomes E flat and then goes back to E natural.
