Chord Changes: D - C - G - G—Little groups of five eighth notes with the first of those five serving as the bass note can have a surprisingly comfortable feel, yet with the gentle push that the 5/8 provides. I'm listening to where each of the voices is leading—the bass line, the top voice, and the middle line. On the G chord I chose to play the B in the bass because I’m walking the bass down. I may repeat three or four of the notes in the group of five, and move only one or two of the voices in the pattern, an approach that I've heard in Bach etudes.
