Level: Advanced. When played up to speed this song is fast-paced and requires finger dexterity and strength. The left hand often jumps between playing bass notes and crossing over the right hand to play the melody. The right hand plays a series of fast notes with accents, and during the verse it plays quick melodic lines of 6ths or 3rds. There are some fast lever changes for lever harps.
