In the second lesson we concentrate on the left hand. The goal is to play the chords in stride style. To reach that, you have to be save with rootless left-hand voicings. Before you play the whole stride accompaniment, practice first the chords separated.
Many voicings in this piece are the same with different roots, try to remember them.
- Practice only the left-hand voicings.
- Play bass and chords without rhythm.
- Play stride piano in time.
