MacPherson's Lament (James MacPherson, Scotland)

0 ratings

This beautiful Scottish tune offers opportunities to explore many concepts. Foremost are developing a successful chord progression (no V chord!, the use of one secondary dominant), several arrangements with a variety of ideas (two, three and four note chords, valley rolls, bounced triplets, arpeggio fills, melodic runs, tremolos, dynamics) and a backup part, and how to use a harmony part and develop it as a backup. 

 Recorded on SunRise
