The right hand at measure 20 might catch you off guard. You go immediately from D-F# to C-E. In previous measures, there was a little space between these pairs of notes.

The right hand is played in sixths at measure 21 and then in octaves at measure 57. When you’re playing these sections, use only your right hand thumb and pinky. Also, your fingers will have an easier time finding the notes if you focus on maintaining the same hand shape. Soon, your hands will know what an what an octave “feels” like.

Keep measure 1-20 sounding short and mechanical. That’s why I called this song “Nuts And Bolts” because it sounds kind of industrial to me. At measure 21, make your playing stronger and smoother.
