Most of the videos on pianogroove include chords with a 10th on top. I’ve just been looking at the Performance of “Every Time We Say Goodbye” and it’s just filled with 10ths… Being able to reach only a 9th, I feel a bit frustrated that this song is presented only for the benefit of those with a big hand stretch.
At 1:06 for instance, there’s F, Eb, G in the LH, and Ab, C, G in the RH. The only way for me to play the LH would be F, Eb, hit the G with my chin and add the RH voicing (which is OK for my hand).
I know I could roll the LH, but in this place in the song it would probably sound out of place since all the other chords fall on every beat.
Hayden, could you list all the alternative options of voicing a chord with a 10th for those who cannot reach it? I’d think: play the 10th with my RH if it’s reachable and there are only 3 notes in the RH voicing. Any other tips? Which notes would I leave out? Would adding the LH 3rd in the RH sound OK?
