Depending on your starting pitch, there are at least seven ways to finger a seven-note scale. But that doesn’t mean you have to memorize every possible pattern. With scales, it’s okay to “play favorites.” Burn in the ones that have a nice flow, and back-burner the others, as solo guitar ace Tuck Andress tends to do with some scales. For instance, here are Andress’ five go-to harmonic minor fingerings (with a couple of variations), shown here in the key of C minor. (Tip: When four notes occur on one string, fret the lowest two with the 1st finger, sliding between them as necessary.)
