How to play the left hand . Please help me

  • You want to put in a piano tag, since this is not so much music theory. Could you also clarify the question? As such alone, I would suggest "slowly for practice", but I guess, that's not what you want to know. – Oliver Dec 20 '19 at 6:44
  • Thanks Oliver. I was not sure about the third beat in the left hand. But now I got my answer how to play it. I didn’t know I have to play Bb & C# together. Thanks again – Farhad Dec 20 '19 at 15:59
  • Is there a problem with the suggested fingering in the score? – Michael Curtis Dec 20 '19 at 17:00

No pedal! I guess you are concerned about the octave drop of the 2nd beat B♭(l.h.). Or it might be the third beat B♭ and C♯ which are played at the same time - but it can't be written with both dots on top of each other!

If it's the first, then work at it slowly,, until it can be played without looking. It's muscle memory, whatever that may be. Getting down to B♭ is easier than getting back to the two black keys, but just target them, and use the same fingers every time.

If it's the second, you play three notes,together,(B♭ C♯ and E) holding the B♭ while the D and F are played together, then repeat.

  • For your last sentence: "play three notes, then two," you should clarify, that the B♭ is a quarter. "play three notes, keep the B♭ and change the other two". – Oliver Dec 20 '19 at 11:21
  • @Oliver - point taken. Tried to improve it. – Tim Dec 20 '19 at 12:02

The left hand thumb (1) always plays the D note. So, when you play the first chord (Bb+D) with your left hand 1 3 fingers, keep the 1 (thumb) in the same place when playing the next D eighth notes (2 4 fingers take care of the Bb and C#).
