Enjoy this country gospel waltz, a delicious mixing of musical genres…
Notice the extensive use of octaves, triplet pickups, walk-ups, and walk-downs, all definitive patterns in the gospel style…
- Memory: Don’t merely “memorize” this. Use your knowledge of chords and scales to understand deeply what simple patterns are being used. Notice, for example, that all the repeated notes are either “the 1” or “the 5” of the chord, the walks are scale-wise, and that all the triplets are the “2-3-1” of the prevailing chord.
- Interpretation: Don’t overplay the triplets. Think unhurried and understated, as they are embellishments, not infrastructure.
- Technique: As always, allow gravity to do the work.
