Hey - on a major/ minor seventh arpeggio in the left hand (such as F,A,C,Eb), what fingering should be used to keep legato?

Also, does anyone else have trouble playing major or minor triad arpeggios in the right hand legato? The thumb crossing over a fourth is hard for me.

3 -2 -1 -4 - 3 ... works for the one you mention.

Usually, don't use the pinky and keep the thumb on the whites.

Except for C major which is all whites, crossing when the fourth is on a black note makes it easier.

Hope it makes sense.

Cheers.

Much more fluent to use 5-4-3-2-1-4-3-....etc..for all keys. It's the most common way to play the dominant seventh arps as well as the diminished seventh arps in the left hand when moving from bass to treble on the keyboard. Likewise it's best to use 1-2-3-4-1-2-...etc for the right hand and using the 5th finger at the top of the run. The reverse fingerings should be used in the opposite direction.

As for the major/ minor triad arps, just keep the hands moving in the direction of the arp to assist the thumb in reaching the note.

Start off slow. It just takes time and it will feel more legato as you get more fluent with it. These arps are quite tiring so don't spend too long in each session on them, just do them every day and your speed will gradually increase also.
