Hi all

Please see attached. At the start of the bass clef there is a grace note tied to the same note. Should i play this twice or simply hold it?

Also, the chord that is just after the grace note on the bass clef (E Bb G) is a real stretch for me. I wondered if i should persevere to try and play it or just simply invert it? Or something else?



Cheers

The grace note is there because, as you say, the chord is a stretch. So play the Eb and then quickly shift your hand up to play the Bb and G. Use the pedal. You do not restrike the Eb.
