    Anne, that video is just so fantastic (lovely to see you again, I miss my daily etude!)
    To get an interesting left hand accompaniment for lead sheets is what I have been looking for. Mine had always seemed to be so ‘thin’ and boring.

    Many thanks indeed

      Thanks, Sara – I’m glad it will help you! That pattern is definitely my “go to” accompaniment. And I’m working on some new offerings, including a new challenge. I will keep you posted!

    I see that chord a lot even in the beginner music I’m learning. I have small hands and really struggle to reach a tenth, let alone with notes in the middle. I always seem to brush the next string with either my fourth finger or my thumb. Any suggestions for gradually increasing span to be able to reach this without always rolling?

      It takes a little time and patience. Work with three and four note chords based on an octave span. Once you get used to the octave span and different middle note configurations, you can start to stretch your range. Just be careful not to push yourself too hard; you don’t want to injure your hands!
