The opening notes set the tone of "Whiter Shade of Pale" right from the start and the interpreter can feel the"presence" of Bach's Air embedded in the main theme. It is essential that you keep the main melody in center stage and be extremely consistent with the right hand fingering. This will ensure a perfect rendition of the work. The left hand used finger 3 stopping the D# as a lever onto which the weight of the hand is shifted and the fingers are presented precisely to do the work.
