5 3 2 1 2 3 5 is a correct fingereing for arpeggios, also 5 4 2 1 2 4 5 which is better for two reasons 1- to gain more flexibility in the fourth and fifth finger 2- the hand is more straight when playing 5 4, than 5 3 where you will have to bend you wrist a little to the left --addition-- Just like to add that this fingereing (5,4) is used when first third is white keys (C major, G major, d minor...) or minor thirds where first is white second is black (C minor, G minor) also used in F# major when the third is a major and first is white, second is black (A major, B major) is better to use the 5 3 fingering <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>
Guide to Learning Piano: Arpeggio Fingering Chart Robert T. Kelley Note: The following chart contains the standard accepted arpeggio fingerings. It is important to remember, though, that not all hands are created the same size or with the same flexibility.
This blog builds on my previous one about the simple C-Am-F/Dm-G progression. In addition to playing and moving around the chords, we are going to be adding ‘transiting’ or ‘filler’ bass notes with our extreme left hand fingers. Your little left small finger ( pinky ) is always holding one bass while you play the chord with the other left-hand fingers, so it’s time to make it even busier by moving it around a bit more, with the purpose of ‘connecting’ the cords with acceptable sounds within the scale you are playing. As you watch the above video, you will observe that you can hop over from one chord to another using a few extra bass notes, as long as they sound right. If you are playing the chords in the key of C, then these notes fall within the scale of C.
Read the original page here. On a piano keyboard there are twelve ways to finger a major scale (depending on your starting note). For example C-major scale, start with your thumb on C: although this won't do for C# which is a black note and requires a finger not a thumb. On a natural keyboard the fingering for C-major is exactly the same for C#-major, and indeed all major scales.
You don’t need a “1000 Chords Dictionary” to be able to read and play chords. You can learn how to form chords on your own, because chords are built using simple formulas. A chord is three or more notes played at the same time. It’s as simple as that. Of course, the trick is to know which three notes… Obviously, not all combinations of notes sound good.

Grand pianos: The soft pedal is used to change the mood of the sound from percussive to more serene and gentle when the soft pedal is depressed. It should not be used solely for producing a softer sound because it will also change the timbre. In order to play pianissimo, you will just have to learn how to play more softly.
