There's a lot of good music in there!

We have volumes 1 & 2 of EKR. Nicely laid out.

Wow...you're on the ball, Ted, and you are also right about "that" chord being a part of this prelude. Just a guess but perhaps they roll it. Not right, in my book. But then, what do I know?

THE chord? Hehe... sounds dangerous :p

It's one one of those augmented suspended inverted fifth to the seventh power chords is it?

*sigh* Sorry, it's early, I havne't had my caffeine and I can't help but laugh at what I don't know :p

Seriously, what chord is it?

I thought it was called "The Doll's Complaint", but this might be a more cheerful version wink
(sweet piece BTW)

Hey Frycek, thanks for this link. The music is still beyond me, but I can see this in my future (I hope and dream anyway).

I did look at the series, and might start on the "easier" volume.

Too bad they have not released the "EKR for Small Brains" yet...

That chord can be played a number of different ways, including rolling it or omitting some notes. But, after all, there's only five notes in the right hand and most of us have five fingers... The key to playing this, if one has sufficient reach, is to play the A# and C# with the thumb. That leaves a whole four fingers to play the other three notes.

I've found I've had to use the thumb that way in several Chopin pieces. I think that's also how he's supposed to have played it. He was practically self taught at the keyborad and that had its advantages.

Slow down and do it right.
