Again, re-resurrecting this thread instead of starting a new one.
Does anyone have alternative fingerings for Bbm and Ebm scales (harmonic)? The melodic flavours are fine, but the weird/awkward (to me) LH fingerings for the F–Gb–A–Bb and Cb–D–Eb scale steps respectively in the harmonic versions cause a lot of rotation in my wrist and my elbow to suddenly stick out, particularly when descending.
Also, does anyone else find their scales improve when the mind wanders compared to concentrating?
On the subject of fingering, how do you play the early Hanon exercises in different keys as very quickly simply translating the fingering from C major ends up very awkward?
