Hello All' On page # 23 the 'C' fingering for "Lean On Me" is 1-3-5. I am not suggesting that 'easy' is the way to go---I am suggesting that a fingering of 1-2-5 is the most logical!

Thank You

Hello "ariang,"

Thank You

In the 2007 edition of the L&M Piano Course Lesson Book, no such fingering was indicated in the notation for "Lean on Me." In general, the recommended fingering for first inversion triads is 1-2-5, not 1-3-5 as printed in the 2009 edition of the L&M Piano LB. Your "suggestion" is excellent!

Interesting; I can see how some printed material might be misleading or incorrect at the time of print, but what should you do if the instructor clearly demonstrates and advises to do it a certain way.
Mystery is correct in that the common method for the first inversion triad is 1-2-5 for the right hand and it is 1-3-5 for the left hand. But do you deviate for the taught method so early in the process or do you wait until the instructor tells you that you can explore and personalize certain methods?
Would this lead to bad habits later on?
Is this a method of stretching the span of your fingers?
Did the instructor learn this way and is just passing it on naturally?

So many questions and no instructor to answer them

Thanks Mystery for being there.

Hello Cliff and All Other Readers of This Topic Thread,

Cliff

Cliff, thanks for the clarification regarding the recommended fingering for each hand when playing first inversion triads.

It is indeed regrettable that Will Barrow is obviously no longer a participant in the L&M Piano forums. His contributions to those forums have been very informative and supportive.

Hi everyone, I know this is an old Topic but I am new and as a matter of fact was working this same Chord Inversion this morning. I found it easier and more comfortable to play 1-2-5 instead of 1-3-5.

 

Thanks for the advise.
