Behind Closed Doors (Charlie Rich, "Pig" Robbins) country piano tutorial

The immortal introduction plus a couple of fills and runs from Charlie Rich's monster country music hit, Behind Closed Doors. Despite Rich being a consummate pianist the studio recording featured Nashville session luminary Hargus "Pig" Robbins on the keys. The riffs feature liberal use of the suspended second, a sound initiated by Floyd Cramer on his classic instrumental Last Date. Effectively this is an attempt to bend notes/chords on the piano to replicate the sound of a pedal steel guitar. Enjoy!
