Here is a little piece I wrote last night and this morning. It is based on an idea JoelW and I thought up (and he is also writing one) - to write an etude on the blocked chord motif from the beginning of Chopin's E major scherzo. Without further ado, here it is:





Hope you enjoy. If anyone would like an audio file, please ask and I will post it here. smile
