For me, this is a question of tempo. The faster the tempo, the more likely I am to choose 52121. The slower it is, the more likely I am to connect the A-F# with the pedal. 51421 or 51321 being most-likely.

I choose this because, as the tempo increases, I look to make the leaps as small as possible for accuracy (note, tone, rhythm, etc).


Every day we are afforded a new chance. The problem with life is not that you run out of chances. In the end, what you run out of are days.
