Next we are going to tackle the D Minor Harmonic scale. As always, I'm going to give you the notes for the scale, then talk about the proper fingering for the scale. The notes are D, E, F, G, A, A sharp, C sharp, and D.
Starting with the thumb of the right hand, play the D note and work your way up to the F. From there cross your thumb under your third finger and continue up the scale. The scale will end with your thumb on the D octave. Coming back down, cross your third finger over the thumb when it gets to the G.
The left hand fingering starts with the pinky. Work your way until your thumb lands on the A. From there cross your third finger over to hit the A sharp and finish with your thumb on the D. Reverse the procedure coming down.
Next, you can practice the D Minor Melodic Scale .
