Thank you, Andrew. 🙂
Such a lovely piece. One of the reasons I went for the easiest submission with the monthly challenge in May…
You can tell by the hand move at the end that I had a second part, too. But I cut it off from the video as I didn’t like the progression of “C 7000 – E7 5444 – Am 30002” in bars 43 and 44. The rest of part 2 is getting ready, but I always trip up on the E7 in the middle… It either doesn’t sound good / doesn’t ring at all in the middle or I nail the C to E7 but miss the Am chord. Any tips for me? I already tried if I could skip e.g. the middle 4s from E7 so the shape remains the same as Am with 3002, but doesn’t work very well either…

Bianca, You’re really sounding lovely on this piece! Honestly I’m glad you’re having trouble on those two bars as I find them the hardest in the entire piece. Here’s a little video with some tips that may help
“Honestly I’m glad you’re having trouble on those two bars” => I literally laughed out loud.
Christopher, thank you so much for the video and for sharing the secret of the hidden pinky finger. I tried it now and as you say it will need some time to get used to, but I already feel that it will work eventually.
Give me a couple of weeks and I’ll be back with a full version of the waltz 😀
