  • Such a beautiful piece and great choice, Luciano! I've read through the score a couple times, but never really worked on it. I remember some of the barres are difficult on the left hand. If you don't have much experience with barres, maybe watching a tutorial on them and doing some exercises first would be a good idea. I think there may be some livestreams and probably something on the pre-recorded side of the website.

    My biggest advice is not to just push through any pain. If your hand is hurting, stop playing. Stretch it out. Find a way to do it with less pressure. No music is worth injuring yourself.

    This piece has such a clear and beautiful melody, so playing that melody on it's own first, making it as beautiful as you can, is always a good idea.

    Enjoy, and I look forward to hearing your progress!

      Luciano Salvatore Eric Phillips Hi Luciano, since Eric was referring to the "'Barre Livestream", I just wanted to make sure that you'll find it :)

      It might seem basic at first, but I find myself coming back to those principles over and over again. Key learning from this livestream is that it is not about applying force, but making use of body mechanics and intelligent rotating. Let me know if that helps you!
