    Chopin 16th Prelude - Help

    Hi, my teacher recently bestowed this work onto my "capable" hands- if anyone has ever played this before and has any advice on it, I would love to hear it. This is one bi4cth of a song.

    I haven`t played that one, but I`ve heard it, and it`s a beaut! Hands must be on fire. Anyway, I can only give basic advice which you are surely already aware of.

    Plenty of h. sep. practice where necessary.
    Slowly h. tog.
    Gradually increase speed.

    The right hand doesn`t seem too bad, it`s that bouncing left hand..

    If it`s any consolation, at least it`s not very long, lol!

    Good luck with it; think how great you`ll feel when you`ve got it...

    LOL. It's kind of funny when someone refers to classical music works as "songs".
