 Alternative G#/Ab key
Author: Lux 
Date:   2016-11-26 07:59

I have seen in a couple of adjustment manuals that the left hand G#/Ab key is sometimes referred to as the 'alternate' G#/Ab key and the right hand G#/Ab key is simply referred to as the "G#/Ab key". This seems backward to me as on most other woodwinds there is a left-hand G#/Ab key used by the pinky finger. Also, I was taught the left-hand G#/Ab fingering way before the right-hand fingering.
