Lead Sheet

Gong Xi Gong Xi by Chen Gexin is a Mandarin Chinese song that is a Lunar New Year standard. The English translation of the title is "Congratulations," but it is sometimes translated as "Happiness to You."

Play the melody with the right hand and realize the designated chords with the left hand. Use one of the left hand chord voicings provided below, or create your own. 

When you see a chord written with a slash, you are being asked to play in a specific inversion. G Min/D means that you will play an G minor chord with D in the bottom voice (2nd inversion). Print out the worksheet so that you can write out your arrangement. Practicing just the bass line will help you to anticipate the chord changes!
