Notes being played, that I cant see on the cheets

Post by Thomandy on Tue Apr 15, 2008 12:49 am

I want to learn: Chopin piano Nocturne op 9 n 2

But one thing I cant understand exactly.



In the area with the numbers and thingie Razz
It is played notes I cant see Razz

Edit:

Does it mean parhaps that I should play:
1-4-3-2-1
c-f-e-d-c

Fast, so i can strice the higher c in correct tempo??
IF I would be so lucky to guess right, what does the horisontal S and - b & "sign" (know the meaning, but not the name for it)

Edit2:

Maby the first c is flat, and the next c is nutral?? Razz
Just guessing, but that kind of would make sence Razz

Hey ^_^ that sign is actually called a "turn"

it's a lovely ornament!

Now...to explain it, basically those numbers are the fingers you'll use, but they're not the notes...

With a turn you always play the primary note followed by the upper note then the primary then lower than primary that sounds a bit confusing so here's an example...if the note is C and there's the turn you'll play these notes

C-D-C-B-C
Now the next thing is the Flat sign above and the natural below. those tell you what the upper and lower notes will be, the upper note is flatted and the lower note is natural...so your turn becomes


C-Db-C-B-C
Now... the way they've written the fingers...that means they want you to play those notes with those fingers.

so it should be played like this
1-4-3-2-1
C-Db-C-B-C


The notes should be played evenly, cleanly and also they should sing out ^_^ put some expression into it!

if you want to I think I had a lesson where I talked about this piece

Hope the helps ^_^

And some play it really well, cant wait to start it. Will start right after I see th lesson 16... I guess I missed a couple of the lessons, I thought I had seen them all Razz Damn Razz hehe Smile

Edit:
