The trouble with small hands is...

The trouble with having been born with extra-small hands is that playing some composers' works is, well, impossible.

Until now, that is.

Rachmaninov had HUGE hands and wrote his music accordingly. I never played any of his works as a piano student simply because I couldn't physically stretch that far past an octave. Heck, just stretching my hands to make an octave was difficult enough. Even now I can't really get past that.

This guy, however, came up with a brilliant solution.

(h/t to my Aunty Ada and my Pop for sending me this one!)
