London's Burning

Lesson
Play-a-long
1. There are 5 lines to learn. The 1st half of each line is the same as the 2nd half - each bit happens twice.
2. Lines 1, 2, 4 and 5 all have the same rhythm (2 quavers and a crotchet) which go with the words 'London's burning'
3. Line 3 is different - crotchet, minim. The minim last for 2 beats, hold it on!

Careful with this line.
Use your tongue, don't blow too hard!
