Pretty much, yeah- play the D and then quickly play the FG with the thumb afterward. Assuming your piano has one, use the sostenuto pedal. Alternatively, if the music permits it, you can use the damper.
Yea a 10th...actually I have to play FandG at the same time which I would think uses the extended thumb method but I only can reach like EF not FG. What do you mean by roll the chord? Let go of the D you're supposed to hold?
Got a piano question for you. If you play something in the Bass Clef and it states you have to hold D in octive one but requires you to go up to F in octive 2, how do you play that? I would think since you can't reach that far that you would have to play F with your right hand.
Yeah, I'd say so. It's not necessarily less enjoyable to do it for a living, but it does require some effort to avoid becoming disenchanted. I think it helps to think of it as 'work where I get to the piano' rather than 'work where I have to play the piano,' if that makes any sense.
