Any questions about the JOI series? Post them here.
So does this mean that in hanon #1, for instance, that the thumb of the right hand (and pinky of the left hand) should actually slide from the last note of one measure to the first note of the next?
Dave wrote:Part of the idea with the JH is that we are getting used to using the thumb in lots of unusual places, to break the classical habit of not using the thumb on the black keys. You may be right in terms of what you are suggesting; I recommend you you the cookie-cutter fingering, if there is a slight jump it's ok. If you still have questions about this you can consult your local priest and follow what he tells you in terms of fingerings..
