I can take 11 keys and Im not sure how tall I am


Once during a concert at Carnegie Hall, the violinist Rachmaninoff was playing with lost his place in the music and whispered to Rachmaninoff, "Where are we?" Rachmaninoff replied, in all seriousness, "Carnegie Hall".

WOW!Rach.... just wow!
Well I'm guessing you A) are pretty tall and have normally proportioned hands (B) have huge hands compared to your short body (kinda like that dude in that episode of the simpsons who has a whole speech on his hand)
or (C) can dislocate a finger on demand
smile

I can do C-E (octave+M3rd), but can't do Bb-D (octave+M3rd). What gives?

I have some music I'd like to write that includes things like C(-1)-C0-G2-E3 (octave+double_octave_5th+M6th) in the left hand and C5-E5-G5-G7-C8-E8-G8-G9 (Cmaj_chord,another 2 octaves higher,octave) in the right hand. Any suggestions?

It made you laugh because you are very good at avoiding the question cool

Taller people are more likely to have big hands, long fingers, long arms which give them some advantage in playing piano.

.....but we don't want to ask so direct. laugh
