    A lot of things go over listeners heads. Like Art Tatum runs that pianists might find difficult might see like someone cleaning the keys on the piano as a chore their mother gave them to do. If i can do it as a child it must be easy to do. Horizontal voice leading used to give me trouble until I started working with choirs and teaching parts. Each line is independent or is it? If I play a major pentatonic scale as a block chord and then invert it in all 5 positions like mode 2,3,4,5 and get that in my ear. I can teach SATB and everything will always sound good because there is no key defining Tritone. The voice leading is always perfect and in 5 part harmony with my right hand. The left hand is free to double the melody or as a free bass in solo work.
