Arrangement Details

The intro, as in the original song, has a quite minimalist in nature. As expected, the right hand plays the melody of the song, i.e. the singer’s part. The left hand accompanies a bass line, which it fills with eighth notes.

Although the score seems simple, the fast speed and repeated notes at the left hand add a degree of difficulty to the piece. However, it is worth trying even by a beginner, as long as the study is done at a slow tempo.

The arrangement follows the E♭ mixolydian key, which is the original key of the recording.
