Caverns - An Improvisation Exercise

For the lesson "Caverns," I used one chord position for my left hand while the right played melody and bass notes. It's pretty amazing what can be done with a little material. "Caverns" is a modal piece in the key of D Dorian.

I start out by playing an ostinato pattern in the left, then reach over the left-hand with my right to hit bass notes. This piece is actually Lesson Seven from my online piano lessons where I break the piece down and show you how I created it - and how you can too!
