Well, there's an amusing one, that certainly surprised me when someone
showed it to me when I was a boy -- which is to play the B as usual, but
then to *add* the throat A key with the one finger you mention. (This
finger is then covering the top LH hole and opening the A key
simultaneously, which you never do normally, but isn't too hard to
arrange.) The B is almost unaffected by the A key being opened.

Now trill with your *right-hand* first finger.

I suppose I would have been unlikely to find *this* one without 'expert'
