What's Your favorite scale?

Post by Admin Andrew on Fri May 23, 2008 5:11 pm

I was just wondering what everyone's favorite scale is.

Personally my favorite is Db major, it's great because you thumb is used on the white keys and the rest of the fingers are on the black. This scale fits your hand VERY naturally. I just love playing it and gliding up and down the keys. cheers

Anyway! Vote away! albino

The C# Major is the same as the Db Major.. And, how do you play it. I guess I have thought my selfe a strange way of playing it. Couse I start with my thumb on the c#/Db

Like this: C# D# F F# G# A# C C#
Like this: 1 2 3 1 2 3 4 5


I like: B major couse my fingers just glide on that one! =)

Yes, i'm quite aware that C# major and Db Major are played the same, as they're enharmonic notes ^_^

actually fingering for Db major *cough* and C# major would be like this...23, 1, 234, 1, 2 This would be with the RH starting on Db.

Hope that helps ^_^

Hehehe, you are really funny *coughing at me* hehehe, I Know you know WinkWink hehe lol!
I just started learning Db, last night, but I wrote it in my Notebook as C#, so it was just to, I dont know, relate it to what I wrote it as visually in my post! Hehe Smile *cough*

Im actually no good at finding correct fingering, well, havnt needed to yet, so I just did what usally do. 12312345 Razz
Yeah, I tryed 23.1.234.1.2 before I asked the question, and it didnt feel natural, but nothing really have felt natural when I first started to do it. Thats why Im clumsy with the fingering Very Happy Hehe Tomorrow it will feel natural Smile

Well, true. I didnt say so Razz But, that tune IS iraq. At least I assosiate is to Iraq. Its culturally desided, probably, on what you assosiate to what.
