Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2
on: April 06, 2020, 10:34:10 PM
Hello there, My question is that of how to go about practicing these bars of the Lassan section. I have tried slow practice in both hands and whenever I start increasing the tempo my left hand can't catch up and begins to play sloppier. Again any tips or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for the help!

Practice arpeggios until you can't play them wrong!

Do you have a small hand? 
Are you using the best fingering?
Do you need to look at the keys to play them?

Is the syncopation throwing off the integration of both hands?

My hand is a bit on the smaller side. I can just reach a 10th.
I'm using the suggested fingering.
I do need to look at my hands to get the coordination.
Yes the syncopation is throwing off my hands.
