jjj Posted March 3, 2008 Author Share Posted March 3, 2008 (edited) Yes... that's true. It shouldn't be all that difficult to find the left hand chords, since the W/H offers even a circle of 5th. It's that new to me that I didn't see the forest, because of too many trees! Now I finally get it. So, it shouldn't be all that difficult to learn the chord patterns. For instance, In C-major one usually goes from C-chord to G- 7th, F-chord etc. So, once I know the chord pattern and position of the C scale I can easily repeat the same pattern in different locations (all scales). Although, the three inversion of each chord allow for more choices than Stradella, it adds complexity. The advantage is that all pattern are only ones to learn and than transposable to all scales. Strange that the same isn't quite that easy on a piano keyboard... there it gets really confusing. No wonder I thought of it as something requiring extraordinary dexterity. With W/H all the fluff & puff just doesn't exist! That's what every hobby musician should know; leaving the awkward, traditional piano layout to those aiming to distance themselves from hobby musicians. I don't envy them...
