I was in the mood for writing a fast song with a busy right hand part. This is in the key of A-major and has three sharps in the key signature. There are a bunch of sixteenth notes in this song, but if you look closely, you’ll find that many of the sections are made up of patterns that are repeated again and again with different chords. Many people make the mistake of trying to learn fast songs at their full tempo. It takes discipline, but try to learn the various sections of this song at a very slow tempo, and then gradually work them up to performance speed.
