Subj: Harmonic Overtone series
Date: Tue, 2 Sep 1997 10:35:00 -0400
Can someone explain the harmonic overtone series to me in regards to the
clarinet? I was reading in my music dictionary that the clarinet
produces only the alternate overtones in the series. I am not sure that
I understand how the overtone series is constructed. Is there a
pattern, or do I just need to memorize the notes?
How can this help me with alternate fingerings in the altissimo
register in particular?
Any thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated.
