Here is a GREAT tip I came across after doing multiple scales. Cut some sandpaper in long thin strips:

Use this between your thumb and the scale and pull with your other hand. This makes sanding go MUCH
faster to get into shape:

Press with your left thumb in this case and pull with the right hand. You can adjust pretty quickly to exactly where you need to sand down.
