With an electronic keyboard supporting a dual voice you can play Gran
Piano, e.g. Yamaha XGLite 302 or the KSP (stereo) version 303 and
French Horn at the same time. If you have support for split voice you
can play percussions with the left hand and melody and chords with the
right hand, with a bit of movement of the left hand. In this case, use
your thumb for La2, as well as for Re3. Of course you can combine dual
and split voices.

There are many possibilities for an intro, outlined below, either
using simply the bare melody without chords of some variations of it.
The possibilities are endless and you may want to invent or improvise
your own using only notes of the melody in either the central or the
previous octave and varying the rhythm. You are the composer as well
as me :-) Music is not set in stone. Have fun. Some of my variations
are outlined below and can be listened.

- Standard intro (only melody, no chords and played slower):

La  La Re> Fa# Fa# Mi Re Mi
La< La Re> Fa# Fa# Mi Mi Re

- Alternate intros (variations on melody):

La  Re> Fa# La La Fa# Fa# Mi
La< Re> Fa# La La Fa# Mi Re

La  Re> Fa# La La La Fa# Fa# Mi
La  Re> Fa# La La Fa# Mi Re

La< La Fa#> Fa# Mi Re Mi
La< La Fa#> Fa# Mi Mi Re

La  Re> Fa# La La Fa# Mi Mi
La  Re> Fa# La La Fa# Mi Re

La  Re> Fa# La La< Fa# Mi Mi
La  Re> Fa# La La< Fa# Mi Re

La  Re> Fa# La La Fa#< Mi Mi
La  Re> Fa# La La Fa#< Mi Re

La< Re> Fa# La La Mi< Fa# Fa#
La  Re> Fa# La La Fa#< Mi Re

La< Re> Fa# La La Mi< Re Mi
La  Re> Fa# La La Mi< Mi Re

La< Re> Fa# La La Mi Re Mi
La  Re> Fa# La La Mi Mi Re

etc.

Always alternate these two licks, slowing down on the last word of the
last verse; on the last verse you can omit all chords and percussions
but that on the very last note.
