Everybody seems to know this song, even if they never attend baseball games. Your students will surely have heard it, and probably can even sing the Take Me Out tothe Ball Game song lyrics.

It makes a good piano duet with "Oom-pah-pah" style bass and chords. Here it is, in the key of C; it's just like the version above, but set higher:

Though this song is arranged for beginners, I can't promise you that this version in C is super easy, because Take Me Out to the Ballgame is full of skips (3rds and 4ths) and perhaps, unfamiliar higher notes.

Now what if you wanted to arrange your own simple chord accompanimentfor, say, the easier version in Middle C position of Take Me Out to the Ballgame? If you don't know how, I will show you how to do that!

  • Because this song has 3 beats per measure, a very nice accompanying chord pattern is a basic "Bass note, triad, triad" pattern. (Oom-pah-pah)
  • Things get more interesting if instead of always choosing the root of the chord (a G for a G chord, for example) on each beat 1 of the measures, you make use of alternative notes of the chord (the 3rd or the5th instead of the root), especially when that note happens to be "on the way" to the root of the next chord.

This is how a "walking bass" is done. See the walking bass from notes G to C, in measure 4 of the Secondo arrangement above.

  • In the example of the Secondo, again, see how F, the root of the F chord (line 5 measure 5) walks up to Gby stepping through an F# (the 3rd or middle note of the D chord) instead of jumping down to root D and then jumping back up to a G, which would be okay, but clunky.

This works because the in-between chord has that F# in it. Sounds nice, too.

  • And what about that C chord using the 5th, a G bass note, instead of repeating the C root again?

Well, it's more interesting to have a differentbass note instead of hitting that same bass note again, when you find 2 measures in a row with exactly the same chord. Not always - just try it and see how you prefer it in eachcase.

  • The broken chords in the last 2 lines of the Secondo make a nicebreakfrom the split chord pattern, and also help build a little excitement coming up on the end of the song.

Now, I could have written out a Secondo part for the Middle C arrangementand dressed it up a bit, but it's nice for piano teachers to understand how to turn anything into a piano duet. Now go show your students.

It's a lot like teaching a man to fish, versus giving him a fish! "Give a man a fish and you'll feed him for a day. Teach him HOW to fish, and you'll feed him for alifetime." Just like the fisherman, YOU can teach your students how to make chord backups to duet and other melodies!
