fingerings on major scales

Post by danzack on Sat Nov 08, 2008 4:14 pm

I just finished B major scale HT at 120. Fingerings for those scales... C, G, D, A, E, B are the same, as somebody told me that for all major scales i have same fingering:

RH up 123 1234 123 12345
RH down 54321 321 4321 321

LH up 54321 321 4321 321
LH down 123 1234 123 12345

Now i came to the #F major and all the scales with flats, and i saw a different fingering. Why is that ??

#Fmaj (Gbmaj) is mostly on the black keys.

So the answer is: Your thumb is shorter than your other fingers. Thats why it uses a different fingering.

#Fmaj (Gbmaj) uses RH up 234 12345.
or with your doublescale formula RH up 234 123 1234 12345.
