Can anyone tell me a correct fingering for the tone - half tone scales? I
always seem to get messed up.
(i.e. C D Eb F Gb Ab A B C, C Db Eb... , C# D E... )

Thanks!
Gil.

Some folks call these the "octatonic" scales..there are three of them, and
since they are symmetrical in design, your fingering could vary depending upon
where you start...
but here are some that work for me (assuming the right hand):

C D Eb F Gb Ab A B C

1 2 3 1 2 3 1 2 1(3)

C Db Eb E F# G A Bb C
1 2 3 1 2 1 2 3 1(4)

C# D E F G Ab Bb B C#
2 1 2 3 1 2 3 1 2
