In the Bleak Midwinter (England)

0 ratings

This piece has been a favorite at Helicon’s Winter Solstice Concerts for over three decades. This is an excellent tune for players of all levels to explore a wide variety of concepts and techniques: (1) chord substitutions with minor chords, a suspension, a few secondary dominants; (2) simple two note chords; (3) three note chords; (4) valley rolls; (5) arpeggio fills; (6) combining valley rolls and arpeggio fills; (7) melodic runs; (8) plucking in one hand and playing arpeggios in the other (9) using the full range of your instrument; and (10) variations.
