“Vincent (Starry, Starry Night)” is a Don McLean classic that is so relaxing to play on the harp! Skills learned in this piece include quick placing of right hand shapes, some syncopation, a few lever changes, and recurring left-hand overlapping brackets. If you learn this piece with the video course, you’ll get valuable advice on how to intertwine the right hand and left hand melodies to make it sound as wistful and effortless as Van Gogh’s original painting of Starry, Starry Night.
Difficulty Level and Skills Required: Mid-intermediate. The right-hand consists of scales, cross-unders, and quick placing of shapes. The left hand largely consists of 4-finger long-overlapping brackets and rolled chords. There is some syncopation as well as a few lever changes.
