I think you'll have a better chance to get good replies if you mention some specific places where you need suggestions.

This is an etude in 6th's. The fingerings for 6ths vary a lot from one person to another, and also, if we wanted to be a wiseguy grin we could say that anyone who attempts such a piece should have a pretty good idea of what kinds of fingerings might work for him, and might only need a few suggestions or else it doesn't make a lot of sense to be playing the piece. Anyway....wanna mention some specific places, and what you've tried? Otherwise I think we'd be at a loss.

Well smile I'd start out with
1/3 1/4 2/5 1/4 1/3 1/4


P.S. I see there are no more replies.
You thought I was being a little nasty blush ....but I was giving you good advice.

If you can ask more specifically, I think people will feel there's a better chance for them to help.

It's almost like a catch 22. You need good technique to play the etude, but the etude is what teaches you the technique...lol

You cant tell what I was originally asking for?
OK now I'm really out.
And no need to answer anything else. I thought asking for a very specific need would go without attitude or controversy. I hereby rescind the question.
