After studying the chromatic scale and the whole-tone scale, you will start studying the major scale in all keys.
There will be more lessons in this regard, I hope that will be useful, we will use the same method to the various steps that will study together.
The exercises contain the fingerings for all major scales in the first year there are hand legend, indicating how to read numeric, the fingerings are in C so are also for D, E, F #, G #, A # major, exchanging fingerings can play also in C #, D #, F, G, A, B. the major scale has the following and tones (H) semitones:
Practice in all tonality and on all the tailpiece, with an equal sound on all fingers, facilitating the movement of the wrist, turning it depending on the direction, the positions described provide the ability to move the fingers less and better release your sound with the arm and wrist!
Where there are no parentheses means, that the fingerings are the same for all and two hands.This is the clearest and easiest way to begin to orient yourself on the crossed tailpieces.
These exercises will make you help find fingerings comfortable depending on how you move on the strings, and positions that in time you will not waste time it will make you tighten up, we limit the use of the thumb down, as much as possible in the specific chords.
Studied before hands separately and then combined to small fragments, increasing the length of the exercises!
es.1,2,3: with two fingers only to be played (1.2; 2.3; 3.4;), detaching every 2 notes.(staccato)
es.4.5. : They must be played with three fingers (1,2,3; 2,3,4;) detaching every 3 notes.
eg. 6. It must be played with four fingers (1,2,3,4) detaching every four notes. 1 overturned, it means the low thumb often used as fingering but to turn on the scale is not very convenient. We will use your thumb down in other situations more interesting and more useful. The 2341 position, will be useful on several occasions, it is new to many chromatic harp players, but it was used in the ancient techniques of impromptu baroque harps running on Spanish Dual cross.
eg. 7 scale up to the seventh, eighth es.8 scale up, scale es.9 until the ninth, and es. 10-scale two octaves!
They are the result of coordination between the two hands. Follow all the instructions and you would never know the difference.
Good study! To the next lessons on Major scale!
