My clarinet teacher gave me such a fingering book published by
Leblanc Educational Publications, it is titled, "Clarinet Fingerings
-- A comprehensive guide for the performer and educator" by Thomas
Ridenour. It has diagrams of the various alt fingerings so you don't
have to constantly refer to the front of the book. Also, next to
each fingering it lists are the sound/characteristic that each produces.

I am looking for a definitive publication describing alternate fingerings for
clarinet. Most of the "fingering charts" sold in music stores describe only
very limited alternatives and are difficult to interpret without constant
reference to a numbered/lettered picture of a clarinet with reference numbers
on the keys. The picture is often at the beginning of the book, and I find
this a frustration. Please let me know where such a publication is currently
available. My former teacher, Leon Russianoff was a master at alternative
fingerings, but I didn't have the foresight to encourage him to publish this
before he died a few years ago.
