Subj: Re: [kl] extra keys & fingering question
Date: Mon, 3 Jul 2000 11:42:52 -0400

This "forked" fingering was the first fingering I ever learned for Eb/Bb. I
feel that perhaps it should be taught first. For me, at least, it is
faster and keeps the fingers in line better; it does not allow for the
student to change the overall position of the hand while playing. As a
teacher of beginners, I do my best to correct all sorts of dreadful
contortions on a daily basis. I know the side fingering felt slow when I
first used it (I can actually remember back that long ago!).
