It’s the 200th anniversary of Chopin’s birth. I learned enough classical piano when I was young, so as to be able to stumble through Nocturne Op 9 No. 1. The left hand plays a regular run of twelve notes following the same pattern while the right ripples away and will occasionally play odd numbers of notes eg 11 in the right hand to 6 in the left, or 7 to 6. So the left hand fixes the rhythm, like the bass in a band, while the right has an improvised feeling. The piece is full of yearning.
Learning to play an instrument badly does increase your appreciation for those who can play it well.
