    to lift finger or not?


    In Bar 1, should the second finger remain on A, and likewise in Bar 2, should the first finger remain on C. which reduces finger movement, but makes the note linger over the later notes played, which don’t sound as crisp. What is the preferred finger method? I hope my question makes sense. Thanks, Vincent

      You can keep the finger on the note if that helps create legato and smoothness. I don’t like overlapping of sound when it comes to melody, I prefer to do this when it’s more of an arpeggio situation. The hold finger down idea is good for efficiency rather than using it musically. Hope that helps.
