In a lesson I just had, my teacher gave me his suggested fingerings for some (movable) scales that I need to play for my exam. He explained that he had tried many different fingerings and found that this works the best.
Unfortunately we ran out of time before I could clarify further and I'll only be seeing him again in 2 weeks. I'll practise as he suggested but in the meantime, thought it would be good if I could understand what makes it the best.
Just wondering, do you guys think that there is a "best fingering" for each type of scale (major, melodic minor/beginning on 6th or 5th string)? If so, why?
