BACH PRELUDE II C MINOR
on: September 06, 2005, 11:23:02 PM
My question is a technical one.  Around measure 9 I find my fingers migrating close to the fallboard- but I find it more difficult to play close to the fallboard.  Should I weave
my fingers in and out (ie. hands closer to the fallboard and then away from the fallboard)
or try to leave my hand and fingers in one position as much as possible?
It would seem to be more efficient in the long run to leave my hand in one place.
THANX!! 8)

I guess it depends on your hands. I have really fat fingers ;D, it's pretty much impossible for me to play next to the fall board, so I would weave in and out...for harmonies with more black keys, closer, otherwise keep them in more comfortable position. But that's just me.
"In the crystal of his harmony he gathered the tears of the Polish people strewn over the fields, and placed them as the diamond of beauty in the diadem of humanity." --The poet Norwid, on Chopin

Thands for the reply.  My fingers are kind of fat too ;D.  I think I'll just weave in and out too!
