Embraceable You Stride Style
In part 1 of this tutorial, we created an introduction and then worked through the A1 and B sections of the tune. We kept the voicings relatively simple and added some reharmonisations and passing chords in places.
In part 2 of this tutorial, we will increase the complexity of the chords to create a climax in the second half of the tune. To achieve this we will increase the spread of the voicings over the keyboard to add more impact to the melody.
In our left hand we will introduce a stride style in places. This will help establish the pulse and keep a sense of forward motion throughout the changes.
