Etude in G

Etude in G by Karl Czerny

This nice song features the famous “Alberti Bass” figure in the left hand which is an accompaniment pattern used in countless pieces.

Definition: Alberti bass is a kind of broken chord or arpeggiated accompaniment, where the notes of the chord are presented in the order lowest, highest, middle, highest. This pattern is then repeated.[1] The broken chord pattern helps to create a smooth, sustained, flowing sound on the piano.

The video shows me playing the song. It includes a play-along section that allows the student to perform along with the recording playing only one hand at a time.
