Here are all the 12 minor harmonic scales with fingering, easy to see and play as picture scales.
The picture chart below show all the 12 harmonic scales in minor, easy to understand and play with the correct fingering. If you play the same pattern again and again, you can play as many octaves as you like, up and down.
The finger numbers that are within a parenthesis (5), are alternative fingering and used when you begin, end or turn the scale.
For example; if the
left hand starts on a finger (5), but as you play the scale ascending several
octaves you will use finger 1 on that note. When you finish the scale you will
use finger (5) again. It is also used when you can use an alternative finger.
There are 12 different harmonic minor scales. 2 of those have two names, so you could brag and say that you have learned 14! Those that have two names look exactly the same on the keyboard, but differently with notes.
You can scroll down for all the scales, or use these quick links to get to the scale you want:

I am interested in lessons, etc, for an electronic keyboard (Casio LK230). I am a true beginner---74-years-old and NO experience whatsoever. But always
