This man had the most incredibly HUGE hands! For you, Andrew, and for anyone reading this who knows musical notation, visualise this - or try it out! (in ascending order of piano keyboard):-

Left hand:-
C 5th finger
Eb 4th
G 3rd
C 2nd
G thumb

Right hand:-
C 2nd finger
E thumb
G 3rd
C 4th
E 5th

For anyone who can follow this it will surely bring tears to their eyes!
