I am looking to play something classical, can anyone recommend some tunes? Basically something that sounds harder than it is (because im not very good). Ive done Moonlight Sonata (adagio), Fur Elise, Wait for Sleep, Butterflies and Hurricanes etc.

He's asking for suggestions from Piano players about classical music that sounds difficult and flashy. He then proceeds to give examples of what he has learned
Legato and fluidity in your playing is where it's at

DJENT!!

Perfect.

Thank you very much.

Though, if you're still a beginner, I wouldn't shoot for Tarentella right away

some parts are hard, especially if you play it at the tempo I do

im pretty fast fingered. basically ive been running scales on the piano for 10 years but couldnt be bothered playing much else until this last year.

answer some other questions for me:-

Eb Blues scale what fingering? r2341231 ?? l ???
I have small hands and fingers, when i play certain black keys i cant put as much power into them as i want and sometimes i'm sloppy on them. How can i solve this?

I did Rudess's co-ordination exercises which help me but any other suggestions for co-ordination? I do harmonising scales starting on different notes on each hand.

Also any tips for fast trills???!?

btw i cant afford a teacher.

I say learn Chopin's Etude in Cm. Opus 11 number 9 I think it is. I can't remember exactly. It's what I'm learning. It sounds harder than what it is or somewhere in between. Either way, it really requires good coordination and will build some good skills for you while at the same time impressing the hell out of most others. It should at least. If anything, the finger movement should impress.

I don't know much about blues, but I'd guess it would be a Eb mixolydian scale (major scale with a flat 7th)

A good piece for finger independence is Prelude and Fugue in G major by Bach

just practice trills between different fingers
