their favorite. I think you're gonna love this one. • Level of difficulty: fifth easiest in the book.
• A deep thought on the subject of fingering : We learn songs at
slow speeds, and therefore fingering seems dumb or unimportant.
Then we wonder why some places are such a pain to play as we
become able to play the song faster. It is because we have formed
permanent fingering habits that make those places almost
impossible to play. Wouldn’t it be better to take just an extra
minute to learn the right fingering the first time?

WARNING: You might be tempted to accent all of the "G's" in this pattern. Don't do it! It will foul you up.

The cool rhythm that starts here is twice as fun to play when you use the accents in the right hand.
(Try practicing measure 13 and 14 slowly, until you get the hang of it.)
