Ahhh, fur elise is driving me mad, so I'm just venting, I can play most of it but that middle piece ahhhh! I can play the hands seperately but they just don't want to work together.... I am only a beginner so how hard is fur elise how long did it take you lot to learn.?

The tune goes round and round my head, so I HAVE to finish it.... who the heck is Elise anyway.

end of rant.....back to practice. bom

Hi Smile

First: Tnx Amro Wink

Sec: Well its a grade 7/11 piece if you think about the solos and a grade 3/11 if you think about the Theme Smile

You got to go slow... Then... more slow!! And after that you got to go even more slow - Then practice it slow again Smile The speed arrives of itsselfe. You cant push up the speed Smile Especially not it the first solo!!! Smile

cheers Thanks Thomandy! slowing it down really worked, and it is forcing me to really read the music and see how the bass notes and trebble notes work together.

I think I will have the middle part sorted in the next few days (well not performance sorted.....but at least I don't want to set the sheet music on fire anymore ! sunny )

Thanks again.

Check out my post on walking. It helps you play the fast stuff. If you figure out why it works, let me know. All I know is that it works.
