    Mnemo is an example of simple chord arpeggios in the left hand (breaking up a chord into single notes, strung together on a line) and a rising and falling melodic curve for the Right hand. There are only three chords in this 4 measure pattern (Am-G, F, G), the same changes as All Along the Watchtower. One chord per measure. 4 chord progressions (one chord per measure) are a rock/pop staple, are really fun, and the more of these you get under your belt, and the more you make up, the better. Also, a rolling flowing left hand is a useful accompaniment to be good at, and this is an alright place to start. Each measure the left hand goes up and down the chord two times. The whole thing has a resolute darkness to it. I'd put this in the Quiet Gothic category.




   The music is dreamy, as the title suggests a Mnemonic remembering, a triggering of a memory. If you are ready, use the pedal each measure to space it out. If you are using a synth, try something moody and with some sustain, but not so much that it just turns into mush. Follow the fingering for the right hand carefully. It is really just a rise up the A minor scale, and then falling back down two whole octaves into the well.
