The F Major Scale...

Post by MrLlama on Thu Jul 09, 2009 7:41 pm

So for the most part I've been good with scales and getting my thumb to fold over to play them

but on the F major scale it plays

F G A A#

I don't think my thumb is supposed to play the A# as that is just really awkward but then if I play it with my 4th finger I get all off trying to play (This is with my right hand, left hand just plays through it normally)

I have a feeling I will encounter this problem in the future with other scales so I'd just like some help if you will Smile

Small typo, it's B# Razz
For scales the easier solution is here http://afpa.hooxs.com/piano-scales-f3/scales-arpeggios-in-pdf-t459.htm?sid=b93b3d75668e1b1da5e4b62ca480d81d (see the major scales pdf), numbers above and below the staffs tell you what finger should be used to play that note. Unluckily few sheets comes with these useful hints elephant

Well this might help you, also you need to go slow to get into it if you mess up, thats already an indication that you are going to fast! Smile

B# = C
F Major = F - G - A - (A#/Bb) - C - D - E - F

No problem about the video Smile I have been thinking of making one for a long time, and finally got around to do it Smile

Wait. So when you say you're gonna play the F major scale...you only play the white keys for that scale? *slightly confused* apologies
