Playing scales over more than one octve

Post by BrandonWalsh on Thu Sep 03, 2009 5:04 pm

Hey, what's with the fingering when I am to play a major or minor scale over several octaves?

1 2 3 1 2 3 4 5 won't work.

1 2 3 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 1 2 3 4 5 works, but what about on the way down? Smile

I'm a lazy Swede! One second of Google solved it for me.

I guess no one wants to know this but I'll post it anyway in a feeble attempt to redeem myself:

Just reverse the way you came up. Here is a link to post that contains links for fingering for scales and such. It's a big help!
