Song description

The song is a wonderful example of recurring melodic patterns played rhythmically, which portrays a clock ticking. The notes in the melodic pattern are then combined and played together as chords. Make sure to listen to the song playthrough and play it with confidence on the backing track.

Compositional analysis

The song is in the key of G major, played on 4/4 time signature in a steady rhythmic pattern, with 8th notes.
From the 5th measure the same notes are played together to form chords, hence you see the notes written one below the other parallelly, that is played on beat.
