I know this isn't the answer you're looking for, but the fingering of all scales is really just a matter of common sense. If you take a look at a collection of notes and give it some thought, you can come up with one or two sets of fingerings that would make you and your teacher content.

 

Also, don't just practice from scale starting on degree 1 going up and down several octaves - practice your scales starting on every note of the scale ... and for good measure, practice them in thirds, sixths ... and in contrary motion to keep things interesting.

 

Instead of looking at the 'scale book', look at your hands.

In general, harmonic complexity is inversely proportional to the ratio between chording and non-chording instruments.

Just so you know that the humour in this wasn't missed, Dave... thanks for the laugh. :wave:
:D is your teacher at least pretty? :D

 

Hanon does include fingering tips, but I guess not for all ocasions :love:

Ummmm.... no, not what I meant at all.

 

I guess the recent "Dick Hyman" joke is still front and center for some folks. ;):P

 

What I meant was, this was Dave's way of saying "if you had a teacher, you wouldn't have to ask the question."
