when i play any scal

Community 921 0
when i play any scale, C major for example, my left hand is always a bit slower and not in correct time when i cross my middle and ring finger, i always tend to slow down. my ascending is OK, but when i descend, my thumb always gets somehow "stuck", and when the thumb plays a note, it is always longer any short-term or long-term solution? thanks

    this used to happen to me. What happens is that you are probably used to playing chords in the left while playing melodies in the right. So you have dexteriority in the right, while you only have movement and precision of chords in the left. If this is the problem i would suggest playing chords in the right and playing melodies in the left. It will sound very awkward and strange but it will help develop your speed in the left hand making it easier to syncopate and match with the right hand. I`m glad i could be of help. if you have any questions or don`t understand, feel free to e-mail me. willja33@farmingdale.edu
