Can anyone help me with Debussy's Clair De lune.  I don't play piano much I'm more of a guitarist, but I can pull of some stuff with piano.  Well my problem is in measure 27 when he starts arpeggiating the chords I don't know how to go about the fingering.  It has to be done with just the left hand right?  Please any help will be greatly appriciated I must learn this song it's sooo beautiful.
Thanks,

I suppose the fingering doesn't absolutely have to be done with the left hand, but I find it easiest that way.
In measure 27, here is my left hand fingering:

521321  521321  521321

In measure 28,

521321  521321  521412

In measure 29,

521432121234124512

In measures 27 and 28, each number is the finger I put on each sixteenth note, the spaces representing the breaks between each little arpeggiated section of 6 notes.  In 29, that is my fingering for each of the sixteenth notes.

Thank you very much I'll try it, but the first note is a sixteenth and a dotted quarter in unison.  Should I just skip over the Dotted quarter part?  Also i have insanely short fingers i have to really strain to reach a 9th, so is it even possible for me to play this piece?

Hi, I use both my left and right hands for these arpegiated runs; the best part is that you do not have to reach more than an eighth. When I right out the fingering, anything in italics is to be played by the right hand. Also, the fingerings are just for the runs, not the melody in your right hand.
