Hi Rick,

Bmaj scale has 5 sharps--I don't think there aren't many fiddle tunes written in that key! But it's actually not too hard to play the scale, once you learn just where to place your fingers--I just tried it. laugh

Hi Rick,

Yeah, it does take time and practice to get the fingers to go where you want them to go. Sorta' like the Raiders of the Lost Ark pieces--daily practice should get you there in the end--hope you and many others are working on that one too!laugh
