Left-hand-over Style

Build-up - Stages One to Three


Musicarta's 'Left-hand-over Style' is a methodical way to build you own piano solos or craft solo piano arrangements of popular tunes.

Here's 'Can't Help Falling In Love With You' played in the Musicarta left-hand-over style.

Start to build your performance. You might be surprised, but we're not starting with the tune!

 Stage One: The RH triads

Find the triads in the right hand and play along. Use the fingers shown, as soon as you can!

The next triad is shown in the falling columns in the video; try to be ready in time.

Download the music for this stage here.

Notice that the RH triads are written in the bass clef.

 Stage Two: Adding the bass notes

Now add the bass notes (orange) in the left hand and shift the RH triad to halfway through the bar.

Download the music for this stage here.

You need to be quite secure with this before going on.

 Stage Three: Breaking up the RH triads

Now break up the RH triads "bottom-middle-top-middle-bottom" (B-M-T-M-B) and play along starting just 'after the beat' (the bass note, at the start of the bar).

Download the music for this stage here.

Now go on to the second webpage in this series.
