Hi all

has anyone worked through this book, and what have your experiences been?

I am particularly interested in the hand shift approach as opposed to thumb under that Marius seems to lay out. For me playing pentatonic scales efficiently (minor and major) and using them for improvisation over a groove is one of my goals for this year

http://mariusnordal.com/wisdomofthehand.html

As an alterantive I saw this book which seems more on the thumb under side but also a lot of value for your money (so it seems)

I bought that book (Wisdom of the Hand) and started practising. I have always looked for any practical fingering for scales. It seems it is what I looked for. It's a pitty that the etudes in the book doesn't have chords for harmony, just notes. I would like to practise the etudes with more variations of left hand. Can anybady help with chords?
