Remarks about this website:

You will find here many scales examples with suggested fingering. Here are some explanations. The little window on the left of the picture below shows the left-hand fingers mentioned beside each note.(1- Index finger to 4- Little finger) The suggested fingering is the one that starts and returns on the same finger. (In case you have a question about it, feel free to ask). Furthermore, the symbols below notes mention the direction of the pick. Down Stroke or Up Stroke.
