If you can "barely play it slow" how can you say that you are "almost done learning" this Etude? That sounds like a contradiction to me. An Etude - or any other work - isn't "done learning" until you can play it at a level that would be acceptable in performance, otherwise there are still things to learn to bring it up to performance level.

What sort of tips and comments are you looking for?

Regards,

Interesting video. Her technique looks very odd--I wonder how she manages to accent the bass notes without apparently moving her upper arm at all! I guess it helps if you have large hands...

take it slowly, its a hard piece. but if u can "barely play it slow", i guess u r not quite "almost done learning" it.

did u try seperate hands? it works for me.

The Chopin Etude Op 10, No 1 doesn't have a "nickname" that I know of, although some call it simply the "arpeggio" Etude. The so-called (mis-named, in my opinion) "Ocean" Etude is Op 25, No 12.

I believe it was Busoni who gave nicknames to all the Chopin Etudes. Mercifully, most of them have been forgotten, although occasionally someone revives the list.

Regards,

I've heard it called the Runaway Chorale, but I don't believe that originated with Busoni. I haven't seen the list you mention.
