As you say that is the point of the exercise.the meaning of "as fast as possible" would mean "as fast as possible with the slurs".
I think that is part of the study, not to be avoided.staham wrote:.... Some of the slurs go to open strings, which I first didn't want, but I saw someone else doing something similar..
The fingering given in the study are quite good, and I wouldn't go about changing it initially. If you start every scale with I, you come out to all good string crossings and a RH fingering that allows you to play the piece quite fast. Slurring to an open string isn't bad and shouldn't be avoided.staham wrote:Thanks. I found a fingering that I think works well for me. I'll use that instead.

To keep the integrity of the slurs, there is really only one way of fingering the piece. That's probably why the editors didn't put in any fingerings.staham wrote:I don't have a single fingering in that study, other than what I've jotted down myself. I have the Eschig edition.
