 Re: alt fingering Eb4

Using the sliver key when you must go from Eb4 to C4 is not often the best choice. Getting the ring finger of the left hand off the sliver to then cover for the C is pretty sloppy. Side Eb key would be the right choice.

I'd not pick the 1 and 1 (or 1 and 2) for a fast passage unless there is a Bb/B to Eb/D#. My whole point in my post to Luc was to learn which fingerings (other than with a problem like Karl's "short, stubby fingers") are available.

The sliver key is on the clarinet for a reason even though the side Eb/Bb is probably used more often.


PS I believe that the use of the LH sliver key has been discussed in several other posts. We do not all agree! But as Karl stated "Each to his own..."
