Major Scales and Chords: Fingering C - E

This video is for any student practicing major scales, especially those who have just started learning them, but also for anyone looking for a little review of fingerings. 

In this video I cover the first 5 major scales going around the Circle of Fifths: C, G, D, A, E and their tonic triads. The fingering patterns are the same in these scales, so once you have mastered the fingering, you simply need to practice each scale to remember the different sharps in each one.
