Gayle, you’re completely right with your observations about adding notes to the melody, it is in fact a tricky business and you will find out that you are not able to do some things that you could do on a piano, for example emphasize a certain line. And when you play chords or counterpoints there is a certain chance for small distortions of the sound, so you have to be very cautious with that. There doesn’t exist a thread for two-handed playing but we have discussed the matter several times in other threads – apart from that (as you have already discovered) people like Lowboy have posted great sound material to analyze and learn from. And yes, I wanted to make you think about two-handed playing again!!!

BTW: I remember having posted an example for two-handed playing quite a long time ago…
