Help with Raindrop Prelude
« on: March 18, 2006, 08:26:29 PM »

Hi all,

Im just having a look through the Raindrop prelude, and Iv think Im up for giving it a try. Iv previously done preludes 4, 6 and 20, and have 9 and 7 work in progress.

Although its quite a bit longer than these others, nothing is phasing me yet. However, Im a little unsure about the fingering in the opening them. Is it meant that the RH plays just the melody, with the LH taking care of the rest?

Assistence would be much appreciated at this point, as Im think Im playing this in an unnecessarily tricky way!

Cheers,

Steve Jones

I use the right hand for just the melody, although it's necessarily wrong to do otherwise. It's easier for me, though. Good luck! It's a beautiful piece.
