 Extreme Altissimo on Bass
Author: Jaray 
Date:   2017-03-16 05:26


I'm working on Jonathan Russell's Bass Clarinet Sonata. Nearing the middle of the piece it calls for altissimo f# above the super high c (7th ledger line f#). I can get up to the high e before it, but the f# is a toss up. Does anybody who's worked on this know of a good fingering to help make this a bit easier.

Thank you

thumb, register key, and middle finger of your left hand. (like playing a middle or high C on sax) thats usually half way between a G and F# for me. Maybe experiment from there?
