Scales in 3rds, 6ths, Octaves, and 10ths – There are an endless number of exercises for finger independence and stretching but playing scales in various intervals provides an excellent workout and adds musical context and variety. Since this is not a scale encyclopedia I’ve limited the number of exercises to major scales with one page for each interval. I’ve written out all the scales in solid form but also practice in broken form.
