An exercise that helps develop left hand independence and control on the piano by playing around with a stride bass. This is a useful one if you want to improve the accuracy of your left hand, even if you’re not that interested in stride piano as a genre. It forces you to be very precise in your playing, and really control the way your hand lands on chords. You can’t fluff around on the piano keyboard “looking” for the right note – your hand just has to be in the right place straightaway!
