 alternate fingering for A?
Author: Riona

Hoo boy. This is where my not knowing what notes are what kills me *blushes* According to the fingering chart in Rubank's Advanced Method book, it is the second A you can hit going from the lowest notes, you don't have any fingers down over the holes, just the "9" key open.

I haven't taken lessons in a bit over a year(or played, oops.) I just picked my clarinet back up and that A sounds way off while I was playing along with a piece on my computer. I know my professor had told me of an alternate fingering for the note where you kept some of your fingers on your right hand down, but I honestly can't remember it, and can't find anything online that says what I should be pressing down. All my book says is that holding down the fingers on your right hand will flatten the note, but I can't hear a difference when I left all 3 down. Is there anything else I could try?
