The first thing we have to consider to play this arrangement is the accents. The trick is to emphasize the 2nd and 4th movement, just as a drummer would do with the snare drum. To do this use the “strum” technique (think Stanley Clarke in School Days), accenting the 2nd and 4th movement where I can try to keep it constant, just like a snare.
Another important thing to keep in mind is the exposure of the theme, to separate the two parts: voice and accompaniment. I play the theme (Stevie’s singing) with a more intense dynamics, trying to keep the accompaniment as simple as possible (only E).
I hope these tips will be useful. Enjoy the transcription!
