I'm having a lot of trouble with one of my pieces, namely the left hand accompaniment. I have to play broken chords that have some serious jumps (C3 to G3 C4 E4 then G2 to G3 C4 E4).

anyone got any helpful pointers?

sounds lame but really, just practice. Start slowly and just build up speed.

Use your pud on some of the notes as if you had a third hand.

Can you post the music so I can try it out for myself?

It's the first two bars on the third last line, the jump is pissing me off

EDIT: the rest of my version is simplified, but not the last section

EDITEDIT: which is actually harder

yeah nothing you can do about that. Just gotta make the jump really fast. Start super slow, work with a metronome, and work your way up until you can do it at the speed you want.
If you really want to get it perfect, practice it until you can do that bit ten times in a row perfectly, with your eyes closed, slowly building up to the speed you want. Even if you miss it the tenth time, start over and do it ten times again. Guarantee if you can do that, you'll never miss it again.

I guess I'll try the ten times thing, it's a practical approach I wouldn't have thought of.

thanks much :cheese:

Totally off-topic, but I still haven't heard you play on a recording like you said you might do in that other thread.

I'm not sure what fingers you're using for that part, but maybe try a different combination. I just tried it, and I find it easier to play the C chord at the top with my ring, index, and thumb instead of using my pinkie.

Worth a shot

Like everyone else said though, practice the shit out of it, because that's really what it'll come down to. The way my teacher explained it, you shouldn't practice something until you can get it right, you should practice something until there's no way you can get it wrong.

Right now the biggest obstacle (besides motivation) is a lack of knowing how to record (well) a grand piano using only a phone or a laptop built-in mic.

I don't give a shit about quality, I want to hear someone better than me that I know something about (even if you are not who you say you are).
