It's hot here in San Diego. Well, not as hot as it is in much of the U.S. but still, pretty sticky! So I decided to put together a 'cool' slide show with music from yours truly.
Actually, what you're listening to is just open position chords in the Key of C Major played over an 8-bar phrase. The phrase is repeated a few times and then the piece ends.
Remember when I said that by mastering the 8-bar phrase you'd be light-years ahead of most piano students? It's true because it can be used as a cornerstone for composition.
Anyway, I may record this as a lesson and give it out as a bonus. Stay tuned! And stay cool!
