I play the double bass, electric bass, most brass instruments - with a preference for the low - and some other instruments, as well as sing (choir, á capella and solo). I know a fair bit of music theory and arranging, as well as some musical acoustics. I have a huge crush on musical instruments in general. My main focus is jazz and related genres, but I find myself in other contexts now and then.

comment Right hand in top stave?
@ColonelPanic: I believe you should play the highlighted chord(s) with your right hand just as Babu answers! (Otherwise there would have been some textual indication that you should play it with your left hand.)

Added note that this doesn't answer OP's actual question.

comment How long would it take to learn to tune a piano?
I don't think tuning by a third is a good idea if you are aiming for an equal tempered tuning since I guess you're likely/risking to tune a just third (of frequency ratio 5/4) of 386 cents which is quite far off from an equal tempered third of 400 cents! Pure fifths (3/2 or 702 cents vs 700 cents of ET) might not be optimal either, especially if you stack them and add the error (ending up with the Pythagorean comma). (Further I believe the octaves are generally stretched a bit in the high and low registers of modernly well tuned pianos. But that might be beyond OP's needs or intents.)

comment Right hand in top stave?
:-) I interprated "the upper stave" as meaning the song stave. I now see "the other question" and for this I totally agree with Babu that the notated chords go in the right hand. The different stem directions are there to indicate the melody as a separate voice from the accompaniment.

comment Why is the last semiquaver outside the last triplet of the measure?
@Chiron: Do as Bavi_H says, or you can practice clapping, tapping and playing four against three which you need to know in order to play the last beat exactly as written. Or you could just wing it, but loose out on a good exercise. :-)

It would be interesting to learn what the down vote was for. Is anything incorrect or does the answer not answer the question? How can I improve it? :-)
