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:-

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.

(another) Solo composition

A song reflecting one's first love/crush. The person thinks it's unrequited but soon realises that the other person has feelings for them too. (Not based on a true story. Or is it...)

This is a very rough (finished) version of it and I'm working on polishing it. (The only reason I made this was because I couldn't sleep at 4 AM).

Any constructive feedback is more than welcomed. Enjoy! :)

How to roll the Boogie?

H i @ a l l ,
I'm FarrierPete, 62 years of age, MuseScore user since 3 years 26 weeks. (Now on MS 2.02) As I'm new to this group: Nice to meet you.
Maybe, you like Old Time Jazz, esp. the Boogie, and try to replicate it on your MIDI-Keyboard or on Fluid Synth with MuseScore? Let's talk about your experience, and what your teacher - if you have any - told you about that. Some hints on "How to" and some links to listen to will be welcome, of course.
To start some discussion:
I'm a nearly complete self taught amateur (or dilettante?) on a 61-Key-MIDI-Keyboard (as that "Steinway&Sons Grand" was too expensive B^)...) Touch sensitive keys, capable of General MIDI. As Musician, I learned reading scores and playin' recorder 55 years ago (at school), learned pickin' Guitar, mostly (german + celtic) Folk, Folk-Rock, Country & Delta-Blues (all by myself, too), I still play the guitar, but in the last 20 years, a MIDI Keyboard joined my computer(s) as input / output device. I still want to learn more...
If you wanna hear some examples, you might listen to
There are eight Boogies in one score... As I still am a simple "free" user (no "pro"), I have to "pile" them into one score.
Tell me, what you think, and what could be done better.
Have Fun and: Set the Music free!
