I actually wrote this song a few years ago when I was a student in college. I’ve made a few changes since then to try and improve the song. For the intro, the left hand has a syncopated rhythm against the fast right hand notes. The left hand gets a bit more complicated at measure 17 as the right hand continues with the same melody. Measure 25-30 alternates loud instrumental fills with a melody played in octaves. I’ve never used this idea before so I thought I’d try it out.
