Chopin Etude - Op.10 No.5
on: May 10, 2003, 04:40:22 AM
Man I was working through it today...  And I got to measure 75...  And I just have to say...  WHAT THE HECK?  I can't seem to reach that F I just am not even getting close.  I tried hitting it with my right hand but thats just as impossible.  I really don't want to leave a note out!  I want to play it right!  This is really disappointing...  It's just way out of my reach...  I can barely reach a 9th musically and a 10th (which this is) is just way out my grasp.  What do I do?  Someone else ever have this problem?

Roll the chord - quickly and lightly. I can strike the chord but I think it is better rolled. Tell me how you do in measures 79-81. I find them very hard.

yes, roll it. ok, i haven't played this piece, but i have many pieces that needs a lot of rolling!

i can reach 9ths but not 10ths. and the best way is to roll the cord fast!

yea, it's also called arpeggiating the chord.

hey, i just looked at my copy of the black key, and on the 75th measure, it says to arpeggiate or roll the chords. they have the vertical trill lines thing beside them..
