He's Got the Whole World

Matt Brown reviews the G major scale and teaches "He's Got the Whole World".

Taught by Matt Brown in Reading Music and Rhythm seriesLength: 13:18Difficulty: 2.0 of 5
Chapter 1: (05:15) Lesson Introduction and G Major Scale Review I. Review

Matt begins lesson 7 with a quick review of some concepts he discussed in previous lessons. If you are having difficulties with any of the following topics, make sure that you review the previous six lessons. Also, feel free to send a message to Matt with any questions you might have.

A. Time Signatures

In past lessons, you learned how time signatures function within a piece of music. Matt provided you with some exercises and songs that are played in 3/4 and 4/4 time. Remember that 4/4 time is also referred to as "common time." An uppercase letter "C" is often used to indicate this time signature.

B. Scales / Keys

Thus far, you have learned to read music in the keys of C major, F major and G major. Review the key signatures for these keys if necessary. In the current lesson, you will learn a new melody in the key of G major. Remember that there is one sharp in the key signature. From the order of sharps on the circle of fifths, we know that this sharp is F#.

Watch carefully as Matt provides a quick review of the G major scale played in "open" position. "Open" position simply indicates that many of the notes within the scale are played as open strings.

Note: Notation and tablature to the G major scale can be found under the "Supplemental Content" tab.

C. Practicing Scales

Whenever you practice a scale, always begin and end the scale on the root note. Matt will cover some exceptions to this rule in later lessons.

Once you have mastered this scale pattern, apply the rhythm exercises presented in past lessons to this scale. Also, practice through the pattern using a variety of picking techniques. Use the following picking patterns when practicing all scales:

1. All Downstrokes
2. All Upstrokes
3. Alternate Picking Beginning with a Downstroke
4. Alternate Picking Beginning with an Upstroke
Chapter 2: (06:08) He's Got the Whole World Process of Learning a Piece

Remember to follow these important steps before you dive into playing a new piece.

1. Make a note of the official title and composer. The official title of this song is "He's Got the Whole World." This is a traditional song. No composer is listed.

2. Note the tempo and style of the piece. Since none is listed, style and tempo are left to the performer's discretion.

3. Note the key signature. There is one sharp in the key signature, so it can be deduced that this song is in the key of G major or E minor. (Minor keys will be discussed in later lessons.)

4. Note the time signature. This song is played in 4/4 time.

5. Are there pickup notes? The first measure is not a complete measure. This measure features three pickup notes played as eighth notes.

Help with Phrasing

Matt provides a performance of this melody at 01:30 in the lesson video.

Always remember to learn the lyrics to the melody if there are any. This will help with your phrasing and musicality on the guitar. It will also help you memorize the piece. The lyrics to this melody are listed below in a phrase-by-phrase fashion.

Phrase 1: He's got the whole world in his hands,

Mute the open B note with the left hand immediately after plucking the open G note.

Phrase 2: He's got the whole world in his hands,

Notice how this phrase follows the exact same rhythm of the previous phrase. The notes within this phrase however are different. These notes imply the dominant chord of the key, D7.

Phrase 3: He's got the whole world in his hands,

This phrase is identical to the first phrase.

Phrase 4: He's got the whole world in his hands.

Each phrase begins with an eighth note played on a weak beat. To highlight where phrases end and begin, play the first eighth note of each phrase with a slight lifted accent.
Chapter 3: (01:28) Demonstration In this scene, Matt gives you an opportunity to practice the melody along with him. He kicks up the tempo in the previous lesson from 116 beats per minute to 118 beats per minute. Do not attempt to play along with Matt until you have sufficiently mastered the melody with a metronome on your own. Begin to practice the melody at a very slow tempo such as 60 beats per minute and gradually work your way up.

Preview of the Next Lesson

In the next lesson, Matt will review the key of F major and its subsequent major scale. You will also learn a new melody in this key.

Hey Matt, I have a question for you. In order to properly acquire the skills that these lessons are supposed to bring us, should we all the time look at the staff while we are playing? In other words, would we miss the point of these lessons if we used the notated material only in the beginning to know which notes and rhythms we should play but then as we work on improving the song we just look at the neck of the guitar and are not actually reading? Thanks!

mattbrownmattbrown replied on April 29th, 2013

That's a really good question...I think you'll be fine if you first learn the song from the standard notation and then play from memory. If you are going to perform something, memorizing it is key. That way you can look at your hands during the difficult parts. I recommend that you periodically refer back to the standard notation though to make sure you haven't forgotten exactly how a certain part should be played.

cobramancobraman replied on February 12th, 2013

There is a sharp symbol missing on the F, fourth string 4th position.

mattbrownmattbrown replied on February 15th, 2013

Hi! The sharp is listed in the key signature. When an F# appears in the key signature, it applies to all F#'s in all octaves even though it is just written on the top line.

camsell94camsell94 replied on June 11th, 2012

Hey just a quick question on rests. In the first bar there's one eighth note rest which is followed by three eighth notes. Does this rest start from the third beat of the measure? There's only one rest so does that mean you don't need to show the rest prior to the eight note rest starting on the third beat? The rest before the eight note rest would be a dotted half note right? So in this case you only have to show the rest that is on the beat closest to the note you're about to play? WOW I'm even confusing myself here and that wasn't a short question but I hope you know what I mean! Thanks

mattbrownmattbrown replied on June 11th, 2012

Yes, that rest occurs on beat 3...An anacrusis or "pick-up" measure is typically not notated as a full measure.

rbradyrbrady replied on January 25th, 2012

When writing the key signature on the staff, is it incorrect to mark (in this case) both F#s available? Like, this piece marks only the high F#, but notes written as the lower F are still played as F#. Does the writer just choose one to mark? Can he mark both if he wants to?

mattbrownmattbrown replied on January 27th, 2012

Yo! Yes, it would be incorrect to mark both F#'s...The highest line is always the one marked...It's all about the range of the instrument that you are notating. If you wrote all of the sharps for the key of C# major (7#'s in the key signature) an octave lower, the lower sharps would have to be written with ledger lines below the staff...So, you'll always see sharps and flats written in the same octave from song to song when you're reading treble clef.

jarls1jarls1 replied on May 18th, 2011

This lesson series is really great. Thank you VERY much.

panama400panama400 replied on January 12th, 2011

how come there is a "c" symbol on the staf in the begining.

panama400panama400 replied on January 26th, 2011

Thank you matt, I love this lesson set. I'm 40 and messed around with a guitar when I was young, but it feels good learning how to read music. I wish I could turn back the clock, I would have taken lessons more serious (just one of the things I would have changed)

mattbrownmattbrown replied on January 27th, 2011

Glad to hear it! Even though reading music can be very frustrating at first, in the long run it will make you a much better player and further your understanding of the music that you are playing. Overall, I think you'll find that developing your reading abilities will lead to a greater appreciation of playing guitar. Keep up the good work!

mattbrownmattbrown replied on January 14th, 2011

The "C" stands for common time. Common time is just a fancy way of saying 4/4 time.

bknokebknoke replied on July 23rd, 2010

Nice Lesson set, really comes in handy. But what are these noises at 4:37, part 2 ?

mattbrownmattbrown replied on July 26th, 2010

haha....no idea!...your guess is as good as mine. It sounds like something fell in the room. :)

scottbrownscottbrown replied on January 12th, 2010

Matt , I can't wait to sit around the campfire this summer with this ultra-cool set list we are learning!! No but seriously this is a great series and now I have a question about the "c" for common time, I have seen it in music books with a line down the middle, looks like a cent sign. What's up with that?

bergeronbryanbergeronbryan replied on December 27th, 2009

Matt - I'm a little lost on how the G Major Scale is used in this song. We don't use any F# notes, so what's the difference between this and the same song written in the key of C? Thanks!

mattbrownmattbrown replied on January 4th, 2010

Hey there! There is actually one F# note in the third measure. Remember that if a sharp note is indicated in the key signature, then that note is played sharp whenever it occurs in the piece unless a natural symbol is written before the note. Since an F# is indicated in the key signature, the F note is played as F# in measure 3. Even, if there were no F# notes in the song, it would still be considered to be in the key of G major since G is the tonal center or "home base" that the melody and chord progression seems to gravitate towards. In many melodies, not all of the notes from the key are used. Phillip Glass has written epice pieces that only use about five notes total.

tjlucerotjlucero replied on January 4th, 2010

I'm new to this but I think it's because on the D string (4th string) the F note is played on the 4th fret (sharp) in this song instead of on the 3rd fret as in the other key.

Good lesson Matt. Rocking the Ministry shirt to boot!

About Matt Brown View Full Biography Matt Brown began playing the guitar at the age of 11. "It was a rule in my family to learn and play an instrument for at least two years. I had been introduced to a lot of great music at the time by friends and their older siblings. I was really into bands like Nirvana, Alice In Chains, and Smashing Pumpkins, so the decision to pick up the guitar came pretty easily."

Matt's musical training has always followed a very structured path. He began studying the guitar with Dayton, Ohio guitar great Danny Voris. I began learning scales, chords, and basic songs like any other guitarist. After breaking his left wrist after playing for only a year, Matt began to study music theory in great detail. I wanted to keep going with my lessons, but I obviously couldn't play at all. Danny basically gave me the equivalent of a freshman year music theory course in the span of two months. These months proved to have a huge impact on Brown's approach to the instrument.

Brown continued his music education at Capital University in Columbus, Ohio. He completed a degree in Classical Guitar Performance in 2002. While at Capital, he also studied jazz guitar and recording techniques in great detail. "I've never had any desire to perform jazz music. Its lack of relevance to modern culture has always turned me off. However, nothing will improve your chops more than studying this music."

Matt Brown currently resides in Dayton, Ohio. He teaches lessons locally as well as at Capital University's Community Music School. Matt's recent projects include writing and recording with his new, as of yet nameless band as well as the formation of a cover band called The Dirty Cunnies.

"I feel like a 12 year old kid with a new guitar!"
 

I am 66 years young and I still got it! I would have never known this if it had not been for Jamplay! I feel like a 12 year old kid with a new guitar! Ha! I cannot express enough how great you're website is! It is for beginners and advanced pickers! I am an advanced picker and thought I had lost it but thanks to you all, I found it again! Even though I only play by ear, I have been a member a whopping whole two weeks now and have already got Brent's country shuffle and country blues down and of course with embellishments. Thank you all for your wonderful program!

"With Jamplay I can fit in a random session when I have time and I can go at my own pace"
 

I'm a fifty eight year old newbie who owns a guitar which has been sitting untouched in a corner for about seven years now. Last weekend I got inspired to pick it up and finally learn how to play after watching an amazing Spanish guitarist on TV. So, here I am. I'm starting at the beginning with Steve Eulberg and I couldn't be happier (except for the sore fingers :) Some day I'm going to play like Steve! I'm self employed with a hectic schedule. With Jamplay I can fit in a random session when I have time and I can go at my own pace, rewinding and replaying the videos until I get it. This is a very enjoyable diversion from my work yet I still feel like I'm accomplishing something worthwhile. Thanks a lot, Greg
