So now, we turn to the minor keys.
We're going to do a C minor etude, and
this one's got two different feels.
It's six-eight for two times,
and swing for two times.
So, I think, what I'd like you to do
is play the melody the first time,
then play a little solo around the melody
the second time, and then walk two times.
So, the first two times are gonna
be in the six-eight field,
the first time you're gonna play melody,
the second time a little solo.
And then, you're gonna do some
walking on the third and fourth times.
