INTRODUCTION

.:;iihers have their own ways of fingering scaies. . - :bis in mind, 1 have in this book placed my own : Y rnsath the notes so that there is room for an . r~.;iri\e system to be written above the notation.

: - 2 . suggested fingerings in the bottom octave of the - . .::=s uill enable the student to retain familiarity with - --: :<>u.er positions on the instrument. 1 suggest the

. : , ~ ju ing fingering patterns for the second octave of al1 - - A . . . - ¡cales. Note that the position moves are the same,

.:;; hough the fingering patterns within these moves are ~ 5 ~ 1 o u s l y different for the major, melodic and tarmonic minor scales; for scales in the keys of E to G:

E major

E rninor melodic

For arpeggios in the keys of E to A, and for dominant sevenths starting between E and A, the following fingering is suggested:

(3) (3) (3) 1 ' 1

major arpeggio

F minor arpeggio

BL major dominant seventh

and for the keys of Bb to Eb, and for dominant sevenths starting between Bb and Eb, the following:

E minor harmonic

11 1 1 1 B major arpeggio

.ind for scales in the keys of Ab to Eb:

major

A minor melodic

B minor arpeggio

E major dominant seventh

A minor harmonic 1 hope that my suggestions may help in bringing a greater fluency and understanding to the student's technical awareness.
