#beginquote# I play the piano, but I've never taken real lessons or anything, I just taught myself. I don't know the correct hand positions... but personally I dont think the key the song is in effects hand position, it just depends where the notes in the song are. Don't take my word though, I'm probably wrong. When I took a keyboard class many years ago, I remember the first position they taught us... both thumbs on middle C and the rest of the fingers just went on the next notes. For example, my right index finger would be on D, my left index finger would be on B. I assume that was in C major, since there were no sharps or flats. G major has one sharp, which is F. So use the same positions, just do F# instead of F natural. Seriously though, don't take my word for it. I thought I'd may as well give a response to the best of my knowledge, since you probably won't get any others. I'm somewhat confused as to what you were saying though. Were you talking about what octave he should play also? If so, I'm quite sure those notes would be played straddling middle C. (G, B, D, where the B is above the top staff line of the bass clef) As for everything else, just trust his teacher... he's a piano teacher, he should know. #endquote#
