small problem with a song/ suggestion

Post by sourstripe on Thu Jul 30, 2009 5:13 am

First the suggestion. I would be a good idea to add like a general questions section for people like me who are not sure where their question should of went.

okay... question time

so i am learning fur elise you your video lesson (while doing the other lessons from the beginning)
i got stuck on one part not the fingering or anything but the sound i am getting. after you do the first 5 4 5 4 5 2 4 3 1 where 1 would be an A, and you get to the next part where the right hand comes in. you start on a with the right hand's 5 (pinkey) i can't seem to get it to sound right for some reason. like the transition of the sound seems kinda off. hope you get what i mean. Now i dont know if this is my keyboard or me pressing to fast or taking to long to get from one A to the other.

any tips or anything would be very helpfull.

You and your videos have been a super help so far. without em i wouldnt of even gotten this far.

Ok, it's E, D#, E, D#, E, B, D, C, A. Then it goes to a C. As in, when you hit the A, count 5 notes to the left. Your thumb should be on C, then play E, A, B(Pinky on B). It should sound like "Ba, ba, ba, bam" xD

As for the suggestion, I don't know. Maybe Andrew will add that.

sorry for double posting.

so i was playing some more tonight. and this left hand thing is annoying me. right after i hit the A with the right hand and the first left hand part i cant get it to sound right. Im pretty sure im hitting the wrong A or i dont know >.< Sad but it's annoying as hell.

I am playing it just like andrew said but i think because it's keyboard i might need to move the notes around or something.

It has to be your fingering because my keyboard also has 61 keys. You should be playing A, E, A on your left hand.
