    Hi, I’m just wondering if anyone could help with which fingers to use when playing scales in double thirds? I don’t currently have a teacher, and I’m working towards doing my exam but have no idea of the correct fingers to uses for the scales! Thank you

    I think the reason you have not had any replies is there are several ways of playing double thirds, depending on the piece.

    One does not try to place that connection, but replace the fingers or raise a bit in between and try to smoothe it out.
