Part 2 of How Hamilton Makes You Cry talks about the Descending Bass, which has been used throughout history to musically create sadness and make people cry. But as usual Lin-Manuel Miranda's dexterity with using this musical idea is something that is worth looking at for how it makes us all misty-eyed. And yes, I talk about Les Miz!
