Many musicians love to play the 1625 Chord progression for the introduction of their songs. They create a dreamy atmosphere for the audience to flavor as they listen to the performance.
Many piano players are frustrated when it comes to playing runs, especially when they see that there are lots of notes going up or coming down. They will be forever counting where the notes are and how to keep up with the rhythm?
