The fingering given on the second bar of the attached picture for the right hand seems odd (right thumb must go under the second finger on the G to get to a black key- Ab). Is there a reason for this, or is it just a mistake on the editor's part?


ANSWER

Hi, Rex--

It looks fine to me. Slip the thumb under to play Ab, then use 2 and 5 for the Bb and Eb and play the C with 3.

Lift your hand and let the pedal sustain while you get to 2 on the F and then use the same fingering.
