comment Why does conventional playing style give the string manipulation to the left hand?
I've also wondered about this. I'm right-handed and I've never learnt the guitar. When I picked up my friend's to see what it was like, I naturally used my right hand for fingering the chords, as that seemed to require the most dexterity. Cue my friend exclaiming "wow, you can play left-handed?!". Although, I played violin (badly) as a child and using my left hand for bowing would seem awkward.

comment Four dotted sixteenths in a triplet
@Gauthier I doubt it's a software problem - Nepomuceno died in 1920. As for other parts interfering - the piece is written for left hand only!

comment How useful are learning aids in teaching oneself piano?
Do you mean "light-up" or "lightened" keyboards?
