.:;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 . : , ~ j u i n fingering g patterns for the second octave of al1 . . . - cales. Note that the position moves are the same, .:;; h o u g h the fingering patterns within these moves are ~5~1ous different ly for the major, melodic and tarmonic minor scales; for scales in the keys of E to G:- - A

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

and for the keys of Bb t o Eb, and for dominant sevenths starting between Bb and Eb, the following:E minor harmonic11
