    Hey Jermaine,

    2 questions:

    1) Why didn’t you guys include the fingering for going back down the scale? Am I to assume it’s always simply the forward fingering in reverse? That didn’t seem to work with a couple of them, like E flat for instance.

    2. Should we practice doing the scales with both hands together, or separately? Or, master them separately then together?
    Thanks,
    Ron

    TO TEACHER JERMAINE,

    I wanted to learn everything so I bought the 300 page lesson , Introduction to chords 101, 102. I have the Christmas chord collection, I listen to chat sessions all the time. Now I’m feeling inundated with so much material and not a clue where to start. You were absolutely right when you said you’ve got to have a plan and I need one. Can you help me?

    I love the fingering chart!

    I learned my scales by reading sheet music with the finger numbers below each note, and it was awful. So much easier to just look at a chart and say, “Oh, okay, Gb is 2-3-4-1-2-3-1-2.” I don’t know why the other way is so much harder, but it is.

    To any beginners – I strongly urge you to use Jermaine’s method to learn the major scales and the correct fingering. It will save you hundreds of hours of heartache.
