Thanks a lot Andrew....Now,I'll go thru first 10 of your lessons and then head towards others....I'm having exams so, I'll do it from next week....

And, you know what??? I practiced Fur Elise a lot for about a month...but, couldn't figure out proper finger positions....But after going thru your video I did the first few parts so nicely and in a short time like over night ...now, I'm stuck in the quicker part ..... can't go ahead....it's tougher....have you got any plans to teach the quicker part???

And one thing , you had told us about the finger positions as :

Thumb-1, Index FInger-2 and blahh blahhh....At the same time, starting with Thumb from 'C' note and moving accordingly....'D' with Index and so on ( for the rt. hand)....

But , I couldn't figure out one thing.....while we are playing Fur Elsie we start with the 'E' but use little finger for hitting 'E' instead of Middle Finger(as was told middle finger for 'E').....I didn't get to undersatnd those things about fingering....

So, how are we supposed to get ideas about which positions to use for a particular song...it doesn't have a Universal Rule for all songs about proper positioning of fingers....While I'm trying to play I don't get to know whether I'm using the right finger for hitting the right Note.

Can you help me out???


peace and love,

Well, I can give sort of a Answer to your question! Smile
There IS One universal Rule to Fingering!!

The easier you can move one, the better the fingering is.

If you use some time to feel your way through any piece, it wont take long to be good at finding fingers to use that is best. Take the C-Major Scale for an Ex: here the easiest way to go is: 1,2,3,1,2,3,4,5
Then is would be very hard to go: 1,2,3,4,5,1,2,3

Think like this in songs to, and take your time. Experiment with what finger feels natural to use if you have to move on. If you Fex are moving to the right(up the piano) with your right hand, its not smart to use the Pinkie on the way unless its the Last note on that walk up the piano, cause then its hard to keep going. Then its more natural to use 3rds and 4ths and then Tuck the Thumb under and continue like that.

If you always think. Easiest way to continue, that might be easier after a while. And experiment, and try to find what feels easy and natural. That harder the piece is, the harder it is to get the fingers correct. Like there is a great difference from Fur Elise Theme to The Fantasie Impromptu Smile

Hope it helps a little at least Smile

I know I asked this in a different topic, but is it okay to keep the fingers up? i.e. whenever I play the C major scale and do a tuck, I let my fingers drop one at a time to play the other notes. So some of them are just hanging there until I get to that note. Should I be keeping them on the piano immediately after the tuck? Thanks.
