more sight singing practice

Today's lesson gives you practice sight singing in the key of E major in the bass clef.  The key of E major has four sharps in the key signature, F#, C#, G# and D#.  The time signature is cut time which is the same as 2/2 time with the half note getting the beat.  If the rhythms pose any problem, you can slow it down and count it in 4/4 time with the quarter note getting the beat.  Speed it back up and tap only the first and third quarter note in each measure and you have cut time.
