Beethoven piano concerto 3
« on: July 09, 2007, 08:16:26 PM »
I'm having trouble playing the scales in the first movement, I'm not fast enough. Any advice on how to improve speed? :(

As a matter of fact I'm  incredibly  discouraged at the moment. How can I explain that? I simply don't feel like playing the piano, I've been tired all these days. When I seat and start playing I get bored immediately and leave it. I don't last more than one minute.
Maybe I should just leave it for a few days... What do you think? :(

try playing them slowly or revise your fingerings. i've also got the same problem but eventually got it. i think the fingerings for the left hand is: 54321321. that's only my fingering, not an optimal fingering. for right hand:12312345.
