Piano Fingering Problem


How would one finger the L.H. in the second bar of the attached picture?


ANSWER

For my hand size I would use:

2 1 3 2 1 2 3 4 for each of the 8-note groups.
5

Use the pedal to smooth the transition between the last note of one group and the first(2)notes of the next group. Just remember to change the pedal immediately after playing the first notes in each group.

Fingering similar passages identically also helps later with memorization. Don't worry about using the thumb on black keys--it can be done quite easily.
