I love it when he says "my fingering", as if he invented the fingering he's teaching.
Or he could just mean "my fingering" as in "the fingering I use"...Which is the way my teacher speaks, the way that I speak, and the way that most people would speak when comparing or teaching fingerings they have learned.
No need to always be condescending.... [/b]
You can say that when you've originated the fingering, or play that fingering in a piece. But fingering for scales don't really belong to anyone (except for whoever created them) since they've been standardized for the most part.
If he said "my fingering" for a piece he was demonstrating, and then did the editorial fingering versus his fingering, I wouldn't nitpick. Also, "the fingering I use" is to me wholly different than "my fingering". Note that no one in the thread has said, "That's my fingering as well."
As for the Liszt fingering, I tried it and it felt quite uncomfortable passing the thumb underneath the fourth when it's on G. Should I be playing closer to the black keys, or does it always feel that way?
