I'm struggling to make a simple passage I've written look and feel 'comfortable'. The left hand is 'travelling' across the piano.
Which of these are more readable? My instinct says to stick with the first, but the number of ledger lines is quite extreme... I could use some advice.
Also, is there another option I am not considering that would be better?
(I edited the third one following a suggestion from comments)
(Also, sorry that I realize now that this question may be somewhat opinion-based; though a general consensus is also an answer in my opinion)
In the end, I am going for the following solution, thanks for all answers/comments. They were all insightful.
