    At least you're not the redheaded stepchild.

    Can't I just claim that Liszt studied with Chopin?

    10/12 is coming along quite nicely. Most of it really is easy, but there are a few LH bits that are just brutal. Mostly they just need practice, but I'm having a hard time figuring out the proper hand position to make this work:

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Can you describe exactly where/what the problem is? Most people don't rate this as one of the more difficult parts; the section starting in G sharp minor usually causes more trouble.

    Indeed, that part causes more trouble. But I think I've figured it out (that is, the bit I asked about) - it just requires a certain lightness and direction that I had to work out. I've mostly got this one down; I might post a practice recording of it in this thread in a week or so, along with 10/1, which is coming along. I'm also starting to get the hang of 10/4, now that I've figured out the right fingerings (I understand now why Nathan compared it to 10/2). 10/3 is also coming along so I might post practice recordings of all four next week (10/1, 3, 4, and 12). I'm spending less time on 10/2 for now, but still working on it a little, along with the Op. 25 etudes (1, 6, 7, 11, and 12).
