#beginquote# Hi there, That's a really interesting question. i've been playing the piano since i was 7 (am now 22) and however good you get- sightreading is always a kick in the face. The low notes you mentioned above are sometimes written in the bass cleff- however when the left hand is playing something already written there, it can become hugely confusing- especially in grades 1-4. I'm assuming that it depends on how the composer intends you to play the piece. Sometimes the left hand will cross over the right to play notes at the very top of the trebble cleff. One of those weird things. Hope that this has been helpful. Sorry i have no concrete references for you. Perhaps an idea to help you with identifying these notes- is to memorise them fully and know exactly how many ledger lines are present for each note. might help you instead of guessing or trying to work it out mid-piece. Good luck with the training!!! :) Danny #endquote#
