What pages have New Topic box ?

Post by Jonathan the 2nd » 18 Jun 2016, 23:33

That`s the question I get stuck with occasionally. I think of a question but many pages have no new topic box in them . I keep falling into the same elephant trap .
By the way ,while the layout is on the menu why does all the header stuff take up so much room? My ship sinks 2 or 3 times just logging on .Oops !there it all goes again ,I think .
In case I forget I wanted to talk about Pask Pianos . (Pianos with Alternative Size Keys ).

I saw your article in the Piano History category. It raises the question of why does each hand need to play outside one octave anyway ?

All categories have a new topic box, top left of the page just above the list of topics.

Chrisw I can play an octave with my left hand but the right just catches the other key unless I play at the very edge . I thought of making a padded rail to fit above the keyboard to bring the keys closer . Then it could be taken off independantly .

My teacher is also unable to span an octave and I think she tends to avoid pieces with lots of octave passages. I am learning a Beethoven sonata at present which is loaded with octave chords at a few places probably because Beethoven simply wanted to raise the volume to compensate for his hearing loss. In these octave runs there is the odd place where I play a single note because otherwise my hand is jumping about too much. I agree with Bill Kibby's sentiment in the history category.
