I have never heard this before. But there was a time in harpsichord technique that fingers 4 and 5 would alternate once you "ran out of fingers" (such as 1,2,3,4,5,4,5). Chopin did some of this, too, in his own fingering for light passages

I learned about virtual pianos on this forum and I thought I'd give it a try. So I purchased Pianoteq stage version for 129.00 dollars last night. Everything went fine with the download and hardware compatibility on my end. The software does exactly

Thanks a lot! One last question: I just noticed that if I move the action out even SLIGHTLY (1/2"), the ghosting problem completely goes away. I can test this by strumming the strings loudly, whether the action is in or out. Dampers work great

I wonder if the tension on the nose bolt had something to do with the breakage on the Rosenkranz. This was a restringing job, right? The plate had held the tension when new so why not now, unless something changed like the scaling or the nose bolt or

Thanks so much BDB. Yes, this piano does have spoons. I'm honing in on the problem: on some dampers, the felt is shifted significantly to the RIGHT (i.e. towards treble). This results in some LEFT strings (in 3 string sets) not being dampened nearl
