F double sharp followed by g?

Post by kirolak » Sat Apr 22, 2017 1:04 pm

This is a very basic question, but I am faced with playing an F double sharp, followed by a G. . . .& suddenly I don't know how to get round it? :chaud: I've been playing the Mertz Nocturne No 1 for a few weeks, sort of on automatic pilot, but today I had an epiphany in reverse . . . !

Do you mean nocturne no.1 , bar 7? If so it isn't a G, it's a Gsharp. :)

Sometimes it's not enough to be sharp, you need to be double sharp. Do you see what I mean? :)

Sometimes you need to see between the lines. :D

The G is sharped in the previous triplet.
If all else fails, try reading the instructions...

Sometimes puns about sharps fall flat.
