thanks for the compliment! no, i have to roll that particular major 10th. however i can play eight of those intervals, the e g# and b d# ones being taxing. depending on which particular m10th some of them partially press down the adjacent key without sounding it. anyway it works on piano, exnay on organ! my r.h. is more limited. have y'all ever noticed intervals often do not have the same distance between them? also i've noticed that the keyboard is pretty much symmetrical. this can be mentally pictured by "butcher-knife-style" placing a mirror on certain places on the keyboard, such as in the middle of the ab. (for a simple example if you play in the right hand d f# a the left hand mirror-image would be g bb d, get it?) anyway it's interesting to check out with wide chords & a good stretching exercise as well. mainly due to the fact of the wide space between the thumb & digit finger not every voicing can be copied by the other hand (in "regular" normal mode). it's also fun to "reflect" your right hand's doings with your left hand even if it sounds like noise, but after all this is only an exercise & besides your left hand may be jealous!
