  • Cascading Mirrors is the second song on my first solo album Sandcastle!

    This song is great for practicing your vibrato because there's a lot of long notes during the main theme and for legato and left hand strength and endurance. The opening riff is also played with an interesting technique (using delay which is in tempo and repeats everything you play a dotted eight note later).
