Help me read please?

This seems like the place to ask beginner level questions so please may I? 
About me; You will have heard my story many times over - I took some lessons years ago and recently found myself wanting to get back in. I was being tutored back then and although I took some lessons over some years I don't think i ever got out of the gate really. I have next to no skill and zero confidence but i want that to change. At this point I have very basic reading skills, given a simple enough piece and enough time to study it and practice I can get a melody and baseline going.

So anyway, with a renewed gusto and a determined mindset that this time i will self study, i found myself here looking for music to play. Beatles, that's a good place to start right? simple, easy and everyone knows the tunes.
Penny lane, that's a goodun I say to myself and then BOOM i hit my first snag. 
The score:-
user/1450996/scores/3872571


second measure, the first notes in bass line require a G in two octaves, the higher G remains held while the lower notes descend further. How is this played?  the stretch is impossible or am i reading it wrong?

thank you for humouring my idiocy.

My first composition

Hello all, I'm looking to get my own work out there and get lots and lots of feedback, if you'd be so kind as to take a look at my own work I'd greatly appreciate it.
I only have one piece as of yet and it's still in work sort of, but it's a very beginner sort of thing so expect the worst lol.

The Virtuoso Piano Discussion-Contest! (2)

As promised, albeit delayed, this is the second contest! I'm not calling the second "week" because I will extend the period to nearly two weeks because I will be away for a period of time, but nevertheless, the competition ensues. The contest is created as a personal quest to find challenging music (and still in the realms of playability) that is technically sound and/or emotionally charged, and also as a platform for virtuoso pianist/composers to show off their skill. Here are a few rules:

1. Instrument: Piano Solo only
2. Duration of piece: Maximum of 7 minutes
3. Style of piece that is allowed this week: Fugue and/or Toccata
4. Only one piece per person per style
5. Leave the link in the comment below
6. It cannot be a transcription (obviously).

The deadline of the contest will be on the 22/12, 1400 hours (GMT)

The songs submitted must be as hard/equal in difficulty to the songs below:

(Fugue)
Nightmare Scherzo (Piano Sonata no. 1 mov. 2) by Mason K. Ichida
https://musescore.com/masonishida/scores/4315251

(Toccata)
Toccata or "Rush Hour", from Cityscape, movement 1, by kenneth.r.t.
https://musescore.com/user/42138/scores/1637646

SCORES RATED ABOVE 4.5:
ChrisHill - Etude no. 4 in F-Sharp Minor, "Inflexion"
https://musescore.com/user/3766071/scores/5194907

Challenges of the "week" will be in the comment below, soon to be posted. I sincerely apologize for using my score as a challenge for the competition, however there seems to be a lack of hard original fugues that I think would be a good standard for the competition. I did comb through listening to a few pages worth of original fugues, and toccatas were even harder to find.

The winner of the previous week was ChrisHill, a hearty congratulations! For those who are able to obtain above 4.5 from me in this competition, his/her score will be posted as above for the next week. The score with the highest rating for the competition will win the competition!

The Virtuoso Piano Discussion-Contest! (First Attempt in Hosting a Contest)

You may recognize this post if you joined the Get Your Music Heard! group. I've been searching for a good piano solo song that shows a degree of virtuoso, intellect and emotion, for quite some time now, and I'm wondering whether the members of this group has got what it takes to impress me! Each week I will set a particular style to follow (that is, to compose), and the style of piece allowed will change every week. Here is a guideline for some simple rules to follow:

1. Instrument: Piano Solo only
2. Duration of piece: Maximum of 7 minutes
3. Style of piece that is allowed this week: Impressionistic and/or Etude
4. Only one piece per person per style
5. How to leave the comment:
Example -> Etude:

Example -> Challenge accepted: (add link)

The submitted piece must be at the same difficulty and/or harder than these pieces mentioned:

1. "Prelude to the Water Sprites" from Prelude to the Water Sprites/The Water Sprites Allure and Curse by The Curious Guy: 
https://musescore.com/user/151230/scores/5285021
2. "Splashes" from Reflections: A Suite of Picturesque Experiences by Skylighter
https://musescore.com/skylighter/reflections
3. "Prelude in G# minor" by trngl
https://musescore.com/trngl/prelude_in_g_minor
4."Etude in B major" by JustisB
https://musescore.com/justisb/etude_in_b_major_me
5. "Paraphrase on Carol of the Bells" by yesverymuch
https://musescore.com/yesverymuch/scores/4816420

CHALLENGE(S) OF THE WEEK:
a) Do an Impressionist music representing the sea that is harder and/or equal to Prince781's At Sea -> link: https://musescore.com/prince781/at-sea-wip

b) Do a etude for the left hand only

I will personally rate them from a scale of 1-5. I rarely give a 1, but it's also very hard to earn a 4.5 to 5. The winner is the one with the highest rating in the week, and those with a score of 4.6 and above will be featured in the following week's contest and may possibly judge the next style's contest.  I hope you join, and I look forward to listen!
