Hi Betty !

I read it easily and thought it was great fun !
I was particulary pleased with myself since English is my second language laugh

I think I read music in some of the same way, at least chords, arpeggioes and alberti bass.
First I notice the top and bottom note, then I fill in the others, if I try to read too fast it is the inner voices that gets wrong.

Thanks, this was a very good example to show how the brain works !
(and I'd love to hear that orchestra with the nice punos wink )

What good news you share, Ragnhild!

The brain loves to work and play! It's good for us!

And, keystrings joins us in play and work with her "punos" and the "oughs". It's enough to be confusing, unless you already know, and then you never forget.

The advantage of 2 or more languages belongs to both of you, Ragnhild, and Keystring. I simply have a few Latin words and Spanish un poco with which to find "roots" and then English gets helped along through the root.

Brain food!

or did you have to carefully identify the notes and the hand-shape initially ... while obviously chiming in the role of the left hand ... and hoping with a re-run of the 4 measures that you will have remembered the chord hand shapes?

My finding is that these hand shapes only come
with dutiful practice when muscle and aural memory
help in meeting the requisite tempo.

I'm not at a piano now (at 1:05 AM), but quickly glancing at the notes, the patterns jumped right out at me.

In the RH, for example, the first measure is just as scale; starting with the F7 chord, and the top note just goes down by step. The third measure just has a repeated G four times in the top voice. There's another scale in the LH of measure 4.

Obviously just reading is different from reading and playing, but the reading itself isn't that complicated. The only times I really identified any notes was when I wanted to write in this post "F7 chord" and "repeated G". All the other notes are based on patterns and shapes that I've seen over and over again.
