I have gone back to work on "The Sound of Silence", and really need help with the pedalling.
I have managed to read the sheet music and am putting together both hands, but there is no indication of pedalling and I end up with a huge cacophony, especially because there are quite a lot of different dynamics (or at least I want to make different dynamics to give more importance to the phrasing).
So I end up with a bit of an explosion right before trying a soft phrase.. but it's eaten up by the remains of the last phrase and I get more noise than anything.
I only really know what the sustain pedal does, or at least I think it's called sustain (in my dp it's the one on the right, or at least it keeps the sounds for longer so I guess that's the sustain pedal?).
I have tried to use it and lift it after the phrasing, but it ends too abruptly for my taste.
... and I really don't have a clue what the other 2 pedals do, I only had a sustain pedal before.

Because I actually like playing the piano in spite of the large number of mistakes I make... so many that for many people I'm just wasting my time.
