polonaise op53

what fingerings to use for the LH octaves in the middle section for some with small hands? (1)(5) all the way? pretty daunting…

or (1)(5), (1)(4), (1)(4), (1)(5) descending?

5 4 4 5, gives u much better contact with the keys too.

it really sucks to have small hands; the only part that’s bothering me is the descending LH octaves

perhaps it’s because my hands aren’t too small that i can actually “grab” the black keys with 1-4. gives a very secure feeling.

1-5 all the way.

as long as you can get the hand/arm moving in a constant circular motion like how Katsaris (or anyone) does, it’s pretty easy sheeyat. my hands aren’t that big but the motion really helps. i’d try to do 1-5,1-4,1-4,1-5

of course, the first part you’re going in the counter-clockwise motion and you have to switch fuckin’ fast :stop: to the opposite when the pattern changes to the flats(?) sorry. don’t have the muzic wit me. :chop:

Personally I use 4on blacks (witha sort of side-ways feel) so I can sorta fall on them and 5 on whites.

1-2 8)

If you play wiz da foot.

I’m a total freak with big hands, but I play 1-5, 1-3, 1-4, 1-5.

I like the sound it creates.

dammit I forgot who the pianist was,

but someone played it 1-2, 1-3, 1-4, 1-5

fuckin nutcase.

probably tha t25 :chop:

or tha pianowolfi

:ho: only used 1-5 i think.
