 Re: alt fingering Eb4
Author: zhangray4

The right hand Eb/Bb key may be difficult to get used to. My former teacher almost always used the sliver key fingering or the 1 and 1 Eb/Bb and only used the side key fingering when he had to. But that was because his first instrument was the oboe, and I think on the oboe you don't have the side trill keys (correct me if I'm wrong).

The good thing about using the side Eb key is that it can be used 90% of the time. It would be pretty hard to go from Eb4 to C4 using the sliver key fingering, or Eb4 to any note lower than C4. The side Eb key solves the issue.

And if you need to play fast passages, you always have the 1 and 1 fingering too just in case.
