Hi All,

Any tips on how to play a repeated note with the fingering 3,2,1 legato?

Thanks,

1. use pedal (if the passage allows it)

2. play arm&wrist legato and let the only fingers do staccato

Hm, maybe keeping the key from rising to it's full height after depression would work, but it's nearly 00:30 here so I can't try it and see, and this would probably change the tone as well as making it quieter, or is this a good thing for the piece?
