[Bars 91-92] The change of tempo is no­to­ri­ously tricky here, with even (dare I say it) the orig­i­nal lurch­ing ever so slightly. I’ve squared off the rhythm a lit­tle to make it eas­ier, but you need to lis­ten re­ally care­fully to the puls­ing synth line to ground you in the new tempo. [Bars 93-104] Pete’s lovely melody bor­rows from the par­al­lel key of F mi­nor for the Eb chord that cre­ates a re­ally nice ‘twist’ for the ears. This means the Eb needs to be tar­geted here rather than the E nat­u­ral from F Ma­jor, which is used for the other three chords. As with the pre­vi­ous sec­tion, use the synth line to help you keep time, es­pe­cially on the longer streams of 16th notes. The fi­nal two bars can be par­tic­u­larly chal­leng­ing with re­gard to tim­ing, as the rhythms are syn­co­pated across the beat. So take your time with this, clap­ping the rhythm first as nec­es­sary.
