Let it be sheet music

Post by Fiasari » Thu Sep 05, 2019 12:58 pm


I'm a new player and after trying myself successfully on some of the 'rookie songs' I started with the intermediate Bootcamp tour and a few songs on the same level.
One of them is 'Let it be' by the Beatles and I just can't figure out how to play it. ): At on point the sheet music says I have t play G, C and E at the same time with my left hand ( C Major in second Invasion) - so far so good - but then it tells me to play the same E with my right hand. How am I suppose to do that? Do I stop playing the E with my left hand a little bit earlier so I can tap it with the right hand? Do I tap it with the left hand? That doesn't sound right... And what do I do the rest of C Major? Simply continuing playing? I mean it says on the sheet music I'm suppose to play a whole note..
Or is the keyboard I'm using simply not big enough for that song and that's way it tells me to play one and the same note at the same time? (I have 66 keys)

Please help

Potentially by using the Damper Pedal. Perhaps an arranger can chime in with their solution.

I play the E with my left thumb. Essentially,I pick up my thumb and drop it.
Another thing about that passage is that it positions the R hand to play the E with the thumb but a different right hand position to play essentially the same passage the second time through. Not a big deal but if it weren't for positioning the right hand to hit that E you could use the same fingering for both passages.
The bad news is that a similar issue happens later in the same song. I forget the details and I haven't worked out how to play though it yet. One of the musicians on the team should take the lesson, and I mean go through the song like they were learning it as a beginner. Otherwise, they'll just play though the passages without even seeing the issues.

Please post a screenshot of the issue, that would help!

In general, this sort of thing happens time to time in piano music. My instincts tell me to use the sustain pedal on the chord, and then re-articulate the E with the RH thumb.
