Now that we have our bridge chords, we apply our technique of adding rich content variation in the performance of the chords.

The left hand will do what we first learned: play block chords on the first and third beat of every measure. The right hand will arpeggiate the same chord shapes one octave higher.

In order to facilitate learning this I have rhythmically shifted the right hand as well. Notice that we have the luxury of playing the left hand chord on the downbeat then starting in with the right hand on the triplet upbeat. Take this whole thing very slowly and deliberately at first. As ever, practice, practice, practice!
