 How to play "Impossible Notes"
Author: James Hogg 
Date:   2007-04-27 22:39

I read on the Wikipedia article on bassoons a mention of "impossible notes".
The quote is as follows: "Also, using certain fingerings, notes may be produced on the instrument that sound lower pitches than the actual range of the instrument. These "impossible notes" tend to sound very gravelly and out of tune, but technically sound below the low B flat."
Does anyone happen to know how to play these as I searched Google and couldn't find any useful results. If you do please say because I, from my limiited knowledge of them, am fascinated.
