Dababy — Suge Sheet Music

Here is a new song in my piano sheet music archive. The original amateur interpretation of a tune. This sheet music is created in a transformative manner (transcription). Plus music notes in the arrangement doesn't copy any existing material.

Piano Player Ability Rating: Intermediate





As I learned, many of you are self-taught piano players and never had a piano class. I try to cover several popular mistakes in piano-playing techniques we are prone to do.

About the Dababy — Suge


Dababy certainly liked to challenge himself when writing!
The score for Suge is only the accompaniment part. The two four-bar phrases are repeated several times. It's perfect for those with elementary skills.
Its rhythmic basis is sustained throughout, so the LH’s principal duty will be to provide a rock-steady footing.

Common Practical Tips for Pianists


Before touching the piano keys, warm up your fingers and wrist with slow and soft rotating motions and light stretching. Rotate your shoulders and arms.

To begin with, practise hands separately, slowly, and in small pieces of one-two bars.
Practise the harder passages first and do it frequently.

Count out loud to ensure accurate rhythm. By counting I mean the ta-ta-ta-ta, not the old ineffective one-and-two-and.
Accent strong beats and play the first bar of any phrase louder than the last bar.

Make sure to arch your fingers. This is important for the health of your wrists and palm.
Slacking your fingers will overwork them and will cause strain.
Keep relaxed, flexible wrists, hands and arms when playing Suge.
A flexible wrist allows producing a warm sound.
Both hands should play smoothly (legato) if not indicated the opposite (staccato).

How to Memorize Dababy — Suge Sheet Music


Start memorizing Suge from the very beginning. Use the sheet music as a hint and avoid looking at a paper sheet (or a monitor) as long as you can when rehearsing the music piece.

In the left hand there are only two chords that are repeated for the whole song: in verses as a quarter notes and in the chorus as straight eights, arpeggiated. It takes nothing to remember only two chords instead of 30 bars of accompaniment.

And the last, be artistic, be creative. Take correction fluid and a black pen and add or delete whatever you want in this arrangement.

How to Play Dababy — Suge Sheet Music


Piano Playing Method


Accuracy in articulation are essential for playing Suge piano sheet music.
Your tone should be energetic and rhythmic. To sound quietly, keep your fingers close to the keys and do some firm practice from the knuckles.

The articulation in this piece is tricky because it alternates between legato and staccato.

Accent every note, varying the accents each time you play. Once played lightly and up to speed, the ornament should flow naturally.
It’s worth trying out this technique for the entire song.

Among the hardest facets of piano playing is controlling a lightness of attack, and when coupled with playing at a faster speed, a reliable warm-hearted leggiero touch must rank as among the most prized piano skills.

The patterns can become repetitive if not coloured imaginatively and played with rhythmic stamina. This will create some drama in your performance.

Suge is speedy. Always keep the hands relaxed, especially with repeated notes, piano keyboard is not lightweight and causes a muscle pain.

Don’t forget to bring dynamic colour to your performance by quickly moving from piano to forte; play every new part with a different volume level.

The Right Hand


Although the score looks easy, start learning the hands separately.

Listen to the actual track Dababy — Suge as you begin to learn the arrangement.

The RH here plays in the unusual bass clef.

Keep your wrist and hand loose and relaxed as you do this.

Notice how short phrasing is. Put the emphasis on the first note of each phrase.

When you're playing staccato, you have to imagine the keys are really hot. Imagine your fingers lightly bouncing the ball here. Don’t attack the keys.

The Left Hand


After getting familiar with the RH, focus on the LH. Practise the LH alone here to ensure a rich and mellow bass.

The LH is generally soft throughout.
The accompaniment in this score changes from chords to arpeggios Alberti bass.

When playing chords, rotate your hand towards the weaker 4th and 5th fingers.
To voice each chord effectively, give the lower note greater emphasis, tone and shape.
Chord too big for the left hand? Leave out repeated notes or/and transfer the top to your right.
Or arpeggiate the chord.
Get your hand in position for each chord before playing it.
A relaxed wrist will help you to balance chords so that all notes sound at the same time.
In the left-hand’s chords use the forward and backward movement along the axis of the hand. Instead of twisting the left hand to the left to reach the next lower chord in the progression, move your arm closer to the black keys, thus allowing for the hand to remain in a linear, more natural position.

As you begin to practise both hands together, start slowly before gradually increasing your tempo.
In the last phase of learning a piece the use of a metronome is vital as you will be working on rhythmic partnerships between the both hands. Nearly all modern hiphop music contains a firm beat. Become aware of the underlying 'pulse' and accent where the 'stronger' beat falls but remember that more is less. Avoid over-using your left hand. Aim at simple and clear playing.

Pedaling


I recommend a pedal change for every chord that is written above the staves.
