Rainfall - An Improvisation Exercise




















Rainfall is a lesson piece that uses 4 chords and the crossover technique to create a nice, light ambiance. Very little material is used here. Just a few chords in the Key of A Major played every 2-bars. The chords are "charted" out on a piece of paper so the player can follow the changes and improvise their own melody on top. This is actually Lesson 70 from my online piano lessons.

    Edward, just wanted to say that I appreciate what you're doing here and on your website. While the world is lost in a mire of dull pop wash, your music is like a breath of freshly inpired air!
