The amount of notes being played is also important for how powerful the music is experienced on both a vertical and a horizontal level. To play strongly, you can on the vertical level doubling chord tones and on the horizontal level play a pattern with many down beats.














In 'Deep River' there is a crescendo effect around the peak of the song. It is not only driven by a heavy velocity, but also by the fact that you play chords with more notes and oktava bass.
