When playing the descending scale in the images shown, I always use finger 3 (orange) on the black F# key (3214321) because it's easier than finger 4 (printed) as it's far from the center and the hand needs to turn inward. I noticed almost all the printed fingerings suggest finger 4 (4321321). Is it just because it's the same fingering when playing the scale in ascending direction? Anyone agree my fingering is better(only for descending)? (I know it's no big deal, but asking because I haven't seen anyone using my orange fingering).
Just to add (learning Clementi Op 36 No. 4, 3rd movement now): This Measure 3, all the fingerings I've seen are as printed: 2-5. I find it much easier and more natural to use fingers 2-4 (see green). At this point I have to think of two tricky parts at the same time: left hand locating the four keys for the chord, right hand squeezing finger 5 to where finger 4 would naturally be. Using finger 2-4 saves me from having to think of the right hand at that moment and concentrate on left hand. (It also sounds better with 2-4 than 2-5, the little thumb). However, because everyone else uses 2-5, I feel guilty to use my different fingering. Thoughts/comments? Anyone agree mine is better?
