raindrop prelude
« on: October 26, 2006, 09:18:57 PM »
just have a little problem understanding the 3rd bar with the long quads. do you play the left hand fingering 1,1, with the thumb of the left hand? or one with the left and one with the right. do the writers of the music write like this to show you that you play notes in the treble and notes in the bass keeping with the left hand. sorry if this is an ambiguous question. these note structures  are a little confusing, common sense should tell me since they are in the bass clef but i just want to check. if i knew how to post the music i would show you what i mean but someone will know what i am asking thanks.

Your common sense is correct, play them both with the thumb of your left hand. However, you very well may play one or both of them with your right hand. It is entirely up to you. Whichever method works best for you. Playing them both with your left hand will make it easier to separate melody from accompaniment, but playing them with your right hand will make it easier to include those two notes as part of the melody. Choose whichever suits you best, either in the sense of being easier to play or sounding the nicest to you.

I play the notes with upright directed stems with right hand, with downward stems left (in this part oft the piece). For me, it's the most natural feeling way.
