Yes, but you can use the weight of the arm to strike notes or you can hold your arm rigid, suspended over the keyboard, using muscles in the hand to work the fingers. I think Charles and Morodiene are suggesting that the former technique is the corre

Thanks Phacke. My score doesn't show pedal markings until bar 39, so I was a little unsure. Chopin was usually very good at pointing out when and where to pedal, which left me uncertain. Pedaling is certainly going to be easier for me than trying t
