Hey guys, I was wondering if you guys could help me with the fingering in this passage. Right now, I am using the fingering that is given, but I was wondering if there is a better alternative. This fingering feels really weird when I try to go faster. Thanks in advance guys!

Is there a specific part of the passage that feels weird to you? Or is it the whole thing?

The suggested fingering is extremely comfortable for me. It's a pretty standard fingering.

You can try this alternate, if it's the 3 vs 4 that's messing you up (starting on the top G, and I will break at the place where you repeat the pattern):

Original: 5352 52413152 52413152
Alternate: 5352 52314152 52314152

You can also play entirely with "3", but I found this a little less comfortable:

Alternate2: 5352 52313152 52313152
