Broken Chords and Arpeggios Fingering 



This is the most compact, and easy to use "formula" for all of the existing broken chords fingering for


 Major and Minor Triads. 


This 'Formula" I have inherited from my mother, Julietta Arutyunova,


  Master of Music in Performance and Pedagogy,


brilliant pianist, highly  experienced and dedicated teacher.

 

 

Broken chords:



Using Only White Keys in all Major and Minor Triads: 

 

L 4th, B 4th, R 4th



With the Black Keys:


Major - B 3rd, B 4th, R 4th


Minor - L 4th, B 4th, R 4th



Arpeggios:



First pattern of the fingering is for the Root position


Second pattern of the fingering is for the First inversion


Third pattern of the fingering is for the Second inversion




The explanation of the abbreviations:


R - right hand


L - left hand


B - both hands



The meaning of the numbers that are being used in the "formula"



The permanent fingers are 1st, 2nd, and 5th, therefore they are being omitted here.


The fingers that being alternated are 3rd, and 4th.


Accordingly:


 L 4th means, that right hand plays 3rd finger.


R 4th means, that right hand plays 4th finger


B 4th means, that both hand play 4th finger


B 3rd means, that both hands play 3rd finger
