I'm having fun and games trying to get round a piece chock-full of difficult forked fingerings at speed. My teacher gave me a tip from Piers Adams - give the note which is giving difficulty a tiny, tiny bit more time than its neighbours when practising. The piece in question cannot be done with alternatives without compromising tone, so I've had no option but to get these tricky fingerings right. In the process of trying out the "lean on it" approach, I've also discovered that making sure the note before the tricky one is absolutely secure and unrushed helps enormously. I must be sooo thick, not to have thought of that before - I hadn't been able to work out why I could do the combinations of notes some times but not at other times.
Anyone else got any tips for this problem?
