The piano G Major Scale below shows the scale by highlighting the notes of the scale with blue keys only.  The red boxes surround the 2 tetrachords (or 4 note groups) which make up the G Major scale.

By playing each tetrachord with a different hand it makes the scale much easier to play.

G Major Arpeggio

Along with the G Major scale now learn the G major arpeggio.  An arpeggio is simply a broken chord.  In this case the g major arpeggio consists of the three notes of the g major chord, G, B and D.

Play these 3 notes individually and one after the other instead of in the usual blocked chord style.

The fingering for the G major arpeggio is:

Right Hand – 1 2 3  1 2 3  5

Left Hand – 5 3 2 1  3 2 1

Do take the time to notice that the fingering for the g major arpeggios both in the right hand and left hand are different than the scale fingerings.
