I'm learning a new song and in one part the left hand has to span and I am not sure how to finger them. Can anyone help?

Ascending:

C G C D Eb G C D Eb G C D Eb

Descending:Same thing but backwards

D C G Eb D C G Eb D C G

I wish I had a piano teacher to help :'(.

Thank you guys/gals :D

That sequence reminds me of Chopin's Revolutionary Etude op. 10 No. 12.

Thus

Ascending:

C G C D Eb G C D Eb G C D Eb

5 2 1 4 3 2 1 4 3 2 1 3 2

Descending:

D C G Eb D C G Eb D C G

3 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4 1 2

This may not be the only one answer so you can find lots of instruction on fingering of this piece.
