A while ago I acquired the sheet music to Monster Hunter's "Rotten Vale". The arranger has a video playing the piece here:
However, what's written, and how it's played in the video don't seem to match up.
In measure six, there's this whole note played in the right hand while doing some arrpegios. I don't know if it's just my lack of skill or flexibility, but it seems impossible to play the sixteenth notes while holding the F.
And, indeed, if you look in the video @ 10 seconds in, the performer hits the F, and does not hold it. Why is this? How is this intended to be played? And why might it use the whole note if it's not intended to be played as a whole note?
