Non-musical scales XI.

Fingering scales by Sápi IV. 

 

Those who don't find the scales presented in the previous sections enough, here's the next step; the four-string fingering scales!

 

As a basic and obvious rule, there must be a note on each string, which gives us only a limited number, exactly 24 variations.

 

 

The below mirror images show all the 24 variations:

These 24 variations combined with the standard 24 fingering combinations will give a total number of 24 x 24 = 576 scales.

 

 

Let's take the 15th variation...
