Learn this piece for Valentines Day (Or Because it’s fun & easy!)
I simplified the arrangement to only a few parts and kept hands in what I call, “voice leading position.”
Your hands pretty much stay in the same position the entire song.
4 Quarter notes right on the down beats.
Right hand on the center. Left hand on the rim.
Right. Left. Right. Left.
I’ve heard this rhythm be called a “Double Backbeat.”
Makes sense if you know what a back beat is.
Right hand Beat one.
Left hand plays ‘2 &’.
Right hand plays beat 3.
Then, on the last beat, Left hand plays beat 4 and right hand on the ‘& of 4.’
Left hand holds down the down beats for us on the rim while our right hand plays two up beats: on the ‘& of 3’ and the ‘& of 4.’
Hope you enjoy this!
As always, I love hearing from you.
