Tables of Fifths - right and left hands

Musical Diary - 14 October 2012 - Newcastle Australia

To create the "left-handed" table, I used the idea that down in pitch (to the left) is to the left hand what up in pitch (to the right) is to the right hand. Furthermore, the requirement that the pivots be at the semitones meant that the left hand should play the key note with the middle finger doing an immediate pivot to the thumb so that the thumb through ring fingers can play the four notes between each of which the interval is a full tone.
