This short piece for free bass accordion is like a study, except that it requires smooth, even playing of a set of four chords in the treble while the actual melody is played by the basses. It should be played evenly throughout, although there is room for personal expression and interpretation in order for the piece to sound musical throughout its 21 bar configuration. In the treble, only the last four bars have chord sets that are different from those that form the block chord motif. The last two bars contain right hand movements that are more complex and include a surprise key change from G Major to E Major at the conclusion.
