Subj: [kl] Sliver keys
Date: Mon, 6 Oct 2003 16:44:13 -0400

To continue beating the sliver-key discussion to death:
there are some passages in which the sliver key simplifies
the fingering. For example, if you are playing a Db major
scale in thirds, without the sliver key you have to either
roll your right hand from the bottom right side key (for Eb
to the two bottom right side keys (for Gb), or use the
non-chromatic Gb (1st finger) and then flip to the thumb F.
The sliver key eliminates these awkwardnesses.
