I've just taken up piano and am encountering some interesting problems. I'm curious to know are they due to me being a leftie or are they just typical beginner problems...? (keeping in mind I've no problem with the treble clef as I've played clarinet for 10 years...)
My hands seems to respond to the wrong clefs sometimes, for example if I see e,d, on the treble and c on the bass I manage to do it with c on the treble and e, d on the bass.
I also find the numbers a little confusing and would feel much more comfortable if the little finger on my left hand was a one instead of a five since that's what the thumb is on the other hand, sometimes my little finger ends up doing what my thumb should be and vice versa....
So are these specific to lefties, beginners or am I just odd? ;-)
