There’s a little thingie I’m doing in the opening where I modulate by just bumping up the lowest note in a right-hand chord a half step or so at a time with each iteration.
I need to do that again in the C#m thing. That’s one of the “gimmicks” of this piece, and I haven’t gone near it since I started writing it. I wrote that cute little four-measure intro, and then just wandered off, but I haven’t found my way back to the cute gimmick yet. I need to do that. That should help give it some damned structure.
