Playing Guide: Tom Bowling – Holding Down Notes in the Left Hand

In Tom Bowling, we have a second voice in the Left Hand.  More specifically a minim that need to be held down while we play other notes.  This technique can be difficult for some students to comprehend.

Yian sometimes forgets to hold down these notes and during our lesson I explained to her how to approach them.  We also discussed some rhythmic aspects of the piece as some of the rhythms are a bit complex as well.
