It should sound right if you play them the exact same time. Same notes played on different ovtaves at the same time give richer feel to the piece. Some different key combination by themselves might sound strange but most cases in the middle of a piece can sound just fine if it is written like that.
Hope that helps.

The notes sounded good although I think you play it a tinch faster than it should be. Listen to some recording on Youtube and you will see.. play it with feeling, not just get done with it and it will be better cheers Keep it up hope to see or hear the whole piece soon Wink

It's like 1 1 2 1 1 2 1 1 2 1 1 2 in lenght, it should be 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1...

The rythm, if you understand what I mean.
The keys should be play'd at same lenght.


( Today I've lost all my english word, they pop up in my head but I dont know how they're written )

Yes, it feels like you're playing in 3/4 rhythm. You should actually play it as triplets in 4/4 rhythm..

You could use headphones or earbudds, then they wouldnt complain, but that's only possible if your keyboard support this ^_^
