I'm talking about this little run:

I can't think of a proper fingering of this, so it sounds very smooth.
Its basically in the Dmajor scale starting on b.

Can anyone help me getting the right fingering for this part?


PS: if you need to know what tempo it is in, and how it sounds, listen to 0:25.

4-2-3-1 or 3-1-4-2 repeated should do it. The second might be a little easier due to the placement of the sharps.

That's if you want to use only your right hand, though! The left's not doing anything so you might as well take advantage of it. Something like the below:

  • I'm often very tempted to use my pinky, but guess I shoudn't here. My left hand is not free, it's playing the bass-line. Thanks! – user717572 Nov 26 '11 at 14:48

The best way to do this run is to think of it as the first 5 notes of two major chords; A and D. Start the run with your pinky on B, 3rd G, 4th A, 2nd F#, 3rd G, thumb E, 2nd F#, thumb D. You should then move your hand left and use the same fingering starting on E etc. I hope you understand what I mean, there are numerous ways to play this run down but I think the above method is the best as it feels very controlled and minimizes the chance of making a mistake as the hand does not have to change position as frequently as other methods suggest. All the best.

Very true on the fingering pattern 5,3,4,2,3,1,2,1 shift right hand left and repeat downward. Getting back to Hanon .

  • This is very unclear. What is "very true?" And by "getting back to Hanon" do you mean that you have been looking over Hanon again, or that OP should be looking at Hanon, or something else? Please flesh your answer out a bit to improve its clarity and usefulness. – David Bowling Mar 12 '18 at 0:32
