This is a non-ending subject. Dwight Dailey, in conducting our Tulsa Comm Band, frequently teaches new fingerings to a number of us reasonably-competent cl'ists. When I have the opportunity, via repair/sale, I try to review horn care and, finding out the student's "level", explain at least the little fing. cross-fingering, the two-index-fing. [long]Eb/Bb, the A + trill "non-pinch" Bb, and the "sliver" keys. The usual comment is "Gee, that's easier!". Don

I personally consider these particular fingerings to be absolutely vital and of equal stature to the "standard" fingerings once a person is past the raw beginner stage. The little finger alternate keys especially important in sharp keys while the 1+1 Eb/Bb is essential in many fast arpeggios and intervals.
