Perhaps Nellsonic can explain for me how this works in a bit more detail.

If you play an upper register harmonic minor scale C5 to C6, so that the notes are C, D, Eb, F, G, Ab, B, C, the LH little finger must stop being 'idle' at some point, in order to play the Ab.

When, in your case? Or is it 'off' the E/B key from the beginning, even if you're a student?

Ridenour's book may well deal with all this, but copies are difficult and expensive to obtain, and I haven't succeeded in getting one. And, while I'm about it, what does Ridenour's book say about diphragmatic support?

As someone who has engaged with this, both here and in my chapter in the Cambridge Companion, I have found no intelligible treatment in the literature. Every tutor I've encountered fudges the issue, including Russianoff, Stubbins and Pino; so what does Ridenour say? (Arnold Jacobs is just plain WRONG, for a clarinet player.)
