Snake Dance Variations – Variation Four

Musicarta Beat and Rhythm, Snake Dance series

The first part of Variation Four has left hand crotchet-minim-crotchet block fifths – the same rhythm as the final, build-up Lesson Six, version.

Here is the first line tapping pattern.

In the second part, the left hand little finger is held down over the whole line while the left hand thumb ‘flaps’ on the off-beat.

Here’s the MS to practice – hands uncrossed.

Notice generally how the performer is giving himself an extra bar or two to get to the right-hand-under position. Let yourself take free executive decisions like this, like same as with your endings.
