The hardest part of this song is the riff that is used over and over. It first appears at measures 5-8. The right is ok, but the left hand is tough. Practice this part really slowly and notice how both hands interact with each other. The left hand “fills in” all of the spaces that the right hand isn’t playing.

The left hand at measure 23 isn’t as hard as it looks. You just hold the notes as you play them. Usually the left hand plays from the bottom to the top, so it might be a different feeling playing from the top to the bottom.

Measures 55-58, is the same thing you’ve been playing throughout the whole song. Everything has just been moved up one octave.
