Saastopankki – the “Spooky Tune” (Traditional, Finland)

0 ratings

What a beautiful discovery with a terrible title which translates roughly to “Savings Bank”!! This lovely piece has become a bit of an ear worm for me! I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do. It offers a nice illustration of the harmonic possibilities of the Aeolian mode. The intro features a toggling of two chords: so much fun to play and explore the power of the natural bass line that exists with the alternating dominant 7th and tonic. Simple but GREAT tune! You will be hooked in no time.

Here's What You Get:

It's like having private mini-tutorials from Ken that you can watch over and over!

NOTE: Even if you already own the sheet music, your purchase ensures that you receive the latest updated versions, and future additions to new arranging ideas, backups and so forth as Ken experiments and develops his playing of the tune.
