Even though I am temporarily injured, I wanted to know the fingering you guys use for Rachmaninov's Etude Tableaux op 39, no 6. I just bought a book of the entire etude, and I wanted to know the fingering out of curiousity. The part I am asking for is right after the two chromatic scales in the beginning. The right hand repeats the same note twice. Do you guys prefer to use the same finger to strike that note or do you do 3-2 on that note. In my version, there is no fingering written. Thanks for your help.

I'm not familiar with this piece, but in my experience you should always try to switch fingers when playing the same note consecutively.

Anyone out there who plays this piece who can be of more help to this person?

Sorry...thought I replied to this already.

Haven't played it, but if I were practicing it, I'd experiment with 5321 and 5231. I'm pretty sure I'd change fingers on the repeated notes.

Yea, I guess I should rephrase my question kind of... Should it be 5321 or 5231? I wasnt sure how this should be played. I probably wont even pick up this piece, I was just curious...

I think both are options. I'm leaning towards 32.

Whatever gets Little Red Riding Hood away from the big bad wolf (or is that another etude?).

I did not play this, but 32 seems like it would be more natural to me.
