I summarized what I paid attention to (points?) when I played 🎼 in my own way. I have summarized the following in my own way. I hope it will be helpful when you play the official piano score 🎹.
It is a ❣️short piece, but it takes a bit of practice to play the progression of the 3rd and 6th degree overlapping notes on the right as scored.
➡️ ・Bar 5: It is difficult to start from the last note of measure 4 (fingering is 32, right?). Be smooth and don’t be hasty.
Bar 5-: The counter-melody on the left should be a little less pronounced.
Bar 7: If you have small hands, the arpeggio at the beginning of the beat will be difficult, but play it slowly and firmly.
If you blow a whistle, or a needle, or anything else, I’ll drink it Monday It doesn’t matter if it’s Sunday Mirror, mirror, mirror, who gives me the most unchanging love in the world No No.
➡️First point. I emphasized the accent of Kaze’s song and played it without legato, but without sounding clumsy. And the left hand is firmly accented on the second beat. Pedal use is minimal.
The right hand accent is on the second beat, and the left hand accent is on the second beat with minimal use of pedals.

➡️ Entering into B, be aware of the decrescendo, “soooooo. When you say, “I’m going to tell you something important from now on,” you should whisper a little.
Bar 17 -: Don’t accent the right hand melody as much as A, but rather use legato.
Bars 18-19: I’d like to die with you ・・・・ in one phrase.
Bar 20: Quietly repeat the repetitive part. Like a sticking point.
Bar 21 -: Second time on mf, with a little push, but bars 23 and 24 should be quiet and fading.
I ain’t nothin’ but ya baby I don’t want to do that lame thing anymore where you don’t realize you’ve lost something until you’ve lost it. Oh don’t you ever say bye bye
This is the second point. The right hand melody changes to a higher register to match the fluffy tune. However, as in “Oh don’t you ever say bye bye,” I don’t like the “kink” of the high notes, so I play it an octave lower than the score. How do you like it?
Bar 25-: Let’s make it sound soft and fluffy with more pedal. However, the left hand should be rhythmic enough not to be too loud.
Bar 28: I think this part should be played an octave lower. Accent the second beat of the left hand.
Bar 32: The right hand from the third beat plays only the lower notes of the octave progression.

➡️・ Measure 33: Enter slowly. Right hand accent is the same as in [A].
The ” ” part of “shin” shin” shin” shin” shin” shin” is two overlapping notes. Since it is difficult to hear the main melody, I play only E for “wa”, A for “shi”, and D(#) for “wa” above.
The right hand plays (31)5(31)(42)(53)(42)(31)(42).
The same goes for the first half of measure 38…39: The right hand “Yokashinu no nuno” is played on (21)(32)1212. This is a very difficult part to play, but if you are aware of the accent at the beginning of each beat, it is difficult to shift.
➡️It seems to be an interlude, but it is an important part with beautiful scatting by Kaze.
∙ Bar 42: Accent the C(#) on beat 1. On beat 4, the B in the left part is played as (431) in the right hand. Then, emphasize the G(#)GF(#) in the left hand.
The right hand should be accented at the beginning of the beat, and the descending form from beat 2 should be played three at a time, with the accent at the beginning.
Bar 45: Lightly accent the fourth beat.
The right hand fingering on beat 3 is (21)(31)(42)(53)(42). The left hand on beat 4 is the same as in measure 42.
Bar 48: A firm crescendo with accents at the beginning of each beat.
🎤I’d rather die than say goodbye to you like this, I’d rather die than say goodbye to you like this, I’d rather die than say goodbye to you like this, I’d rather die than say goodbye to you like this
➡️This is the third point. The climax part is also played one octave lower as in [C].
∙Bar 51: As in bars 35-36, there are three notes that are not played.
Bar 53: From the third beat, the six-degree progression of “You’re good” is played using the fingering (41)(52)(41)(31)(41)(52)(41)(52)(31)(41)(52)(41)(52).
Bars 54-55: “Yoka shinu wa ikonai” is played with (41)(31)(41)(41)51243(31).
🎤But still sometimes my heart floats I don’t need that lame thing anymore bye bye I’ll always stick with ya my baby
➡️I guess I was worn out by the above 6 degree heavy part and suddenly slowed down, but I think I should have played it a little easier.
That’s all. (November 28, 2020 note)
