Good technique is needed for this musette. The right hand has numerous eighth notes, which need clarity and speed. The left hand also has some difficulties. The fifth finger has a droning G throughout the entire piece, creating a sound imitative of a bagpipe. Above this note, the left hand also has moving quarter notes. Bringing out the melodic line is important so that the texture does not become too thick.
