 Re: The best way to play Eflat-F

Better players will use left F for all the Fs, especially the long F in bar 6, but with the possibility of using fork F for the 16th note in bar 7 to make the line less clunky.

The separate issue is: why is your fork F weak? On most instruments, the fork F tone is darker and the intonation can be a bit sharp. If you have a full conservatory instrument, then it has the F resonance key. Have you had a good player try your oboe to see whether the instrument is adjusted properly?

I have seen full conservatory instruments on which the owner disabled the F resonance key...best to have it checked out by a qualified oboe technician to make sure.
