    hello

    a beginner asks about scale fingering, specifically, correct finger placement when continuing through
    to the next octave...

    for example, with left hand, the C major scale runs: 54321321

    if continuing through to the next octave, that last '1' would actually be the '5' (i.e., pinky)

    so, the last three notes in the sequence would be: middle, index, then pinky (not thumb)--correct?

    if so, it seems rather a large jump: index to pinky...

    we've looked around YouTube, but could not locate a comprehensive tutorial on scale fingering when continuing through the octave...if you know of a YT lesson (or, anywhere online, for that matter), please advise...

    thank you
