This is a less technical question but something really important for to me. I've been reading stackexchange for years now from computer programming, language learning, and music, time to finally ask a question.
So I consider myself a rather poor pianist compared to most people, I do it for fun. I've taken lessons since I was 6 ( I am 18 ), didn't keep going with them, but I always played. This question isn't necessarily about whether I should take classes, but if you must answer with that then that's fine. Now to the point:
I want to play this song, but I am unsure if I have the ability to play it. For reference, here is the second hardest part ( in my opinion ) in the song.
And as for a reference to my current skill, I know these songs
-EDIT:- It won't let me condense more than two links unless I have 10 reputation, so sorry for this huge video taking up so much room.
[Look at 2:34 and 3:40]( although I play the part at 3:40 twice as fast personally, and without putting my left hand over the right )
I realize this is less of a general question and more personal to me, but I believe by answering this other people who might be at similar skill or even those who aren't will be able to use your answers as reference.
So the question: Should I try? I who see people online who say that the hardest of pieces that are way out of their league can take weeks to months to really get down, but as long as enough practice goes into it they can do it. So is practice and diligence all I need?
(Bonus question: the piece is so different than what I normally try, should I be concerned about health, and start paying more attention to technique?)
Thank you all so much for whatever answers you give, this question actually really means a lot to me and how I want to continue learning, and I will look at every single reply and consider each carefully, even if it's an answer I didn't necessarily want or expect ( Oh and sorry for rambling too much ).
