    Hi folks,

    I am wondering if anyone can point me toward some scale charts on the web that include the fingerings for each note.

    Cheers,

    Paul

    Yee HAW!
    If you are at this stage of learning trumpet I recommend you go out and buy yourself a copy of Arbans. It has the fingerings in it and graduated exercises that range from "day 1 beginner" to "fully-qualified professional".

    A heck of a lot better investment than buying another mouthpiece!

    This a nice web site, but it doesn't seem to have what the original question asked for--all the scales with all the trumpet fingering for those scales.

    So far, no one has provided a reference for that. The only solution seems to be to take scales and insert one's own fingering notations, or make up the scales from scratch with the fingering in.

    The assumption seems to be that fingering can be given one time in isolated exercises and it is from then on cemented in the mind and fingers, so there's no need to have finger-marked scales even for reference.

    The fingerings within Arban are more than sufficient for someone starting out on the trumpet as they encompass the "normal" range of the trumpet/cornet.

    The reason you cannot find what you are looking for is that most tutors assume that you will learn a particular fingering e.g. G# 2+3 by doing some exercises using that note and then you will have learned that fingering. OK you will need to remind yourself of that fingering when you next bump into it but you will remember what you are doing.

    To get what you want there is no harm in getting all the scales which are available from many websites, print them out and then get the first page of arban and refer from one to the other and write the fingerings out underneath. It's a bit of work but it is also a learning experience where you will start to recognise the fingering patterns as you write them out.
