I need some help with fingerings. In my piano lessons everything we did was in 5 finger positions, I rarely had to move my right hand from where it was at the start of whatever it was I was playing(only took a few lessons). So anyway, now Im trying to learn all these Children of Bodom and Sonata Arctica songs and the biggest problem I'm having is figuring out what fingers I should be using to play any given part of the songs(The songs require a bit more position changes than Mary Had a Little Lamb :p). Also, anything involving more than two or three black keys is usually extra frustrating for me, heheh.
So if someone could set me straight on that issue I'd really appreciate it.

I'm learning Downfall by Children of Bodom(well, parts of it atleast). I was wonderin' if someone could verify that I'm using the proper fingers for these arpeggios(see attached powertab file :p)

K, I use tha same fingering for each arpeggio. Left hand: pinky, index, thumb; Right hand: thumb, middle, ring finger

Thanks alot for the help. I was pretty sure I wasn't doing it correctly(being as I really have no clue what I'm doing :p). I guess have more to learn and to practice than I thought :O


ergghh, I just looked at live video of this song and it looks like he plays it all with his right hand :O Perhaps I should spend some time learning the rules and techniques before attempting songs, I don't want to develope any bad habits or anything.
