hey guys! i'm new to ljp and wanted to try it out by asking something that's been giving me trouble for a while now...

does anyone have a good fingering for donna lee?
the part giving me the most fingering trouble is bar 25 to bar 30(bars 9-14 in the b section)

if anyone could help me figure this one out i'd be very grateful.

thanks!

i'm guessing you're wanting a rh fingering.  try this, beginning with the pick-up to 25:

1 2123 4312 3232 1214 343 13 5432 1234 1321 3214 3212 1235 4321 3
and assuming the key of ab :)
wonderful! your the best thanks much!
the fingering you put for bar 27 is a little funny for me but i'll give it some practice.
this is a big help because i was nervous about practicing the wrong fingering.

also, yes i'm in ab..i should of stated that.

thanks dr. whack
you're very welcome!

there's really no right or wrong way to do it, but there are ways that may be more efficient or comfortable than others.  you could also try 343 23 5432 in measure 27, but that may give your 2 & 3 a bit of a work out.  that is an awkward measure for sure.  i'll bet it's much easier to play on sax :)
