Hi, how do you guys play this kind of arpeggio, what fingering do you suggest for right and left hand? (for example C major):
E4-C4-G4-E4-C5-G4-E5-C5-G5-E5-C6-G5-E6-C6-G6-E6-C7-G6-E7-C7-etc..
it's a broken arpeggio used often by Mozart and the Baroque period.

There could be a few variations depending on the context, what comes before and what follows.

I usually go for as few changes in hand position as possible. So for example the right hand might be:

2 1 3 2 5 1 4 2 5 1 4 2 5 1 3 2 5 etc.

Left hand:

4 5 2 4 1 5 2 3 1 5 2 4 1 5 2 4 1 etc.
