I have a question on the bass clef on I believe the 5 measure. There is a little half note that is tied to another little quarter note. My question is this. What does this little note mean? If I am suppose to hold that note out, what do I do if my fingers are wide enough? (I have already tried).

Thanks, Boliver Allmon

It means you hold the first note of each figure.  But this is not important because all editions of Chopin is different and we really don't know which one is the most accurate one. Thats the problem with Chopin's music. He always changed little details even if it was being published. If you can hold it thats fine. What do you mean by wide enough?

I can't stretch that far and fast. I probably could with practice, but just can't yet.

Ok, I take that back. I can on my piano. I wasn't able to the other night at my friend's house. My question is this, are all keys equal size? or was I just not stretched?
