Fingering Chart for the English Thumb Plate Oboe.

This is a fingering chart for the Thumb Plate system Oboe, also know as the English Thumb Plate. This includes all the basic fingerings with extra fingerings for certain notes and a few 'harmonic' fingerings that work very well also.


Here are the symbols used for the fingering chart itself.
<> = half hole (finger one LH)
X = Finger down on tone hole
O = Finger off tone hole.
|| = Left Hand fingers 123 on the left and Right Hand fingers 345 in the right.
Tp = Left Hand thumb down on Thumb Plate. (no TP show = Thumb Plate not down.)
8ve 1 = Octave key above TP opened.
8ve 2 = Octave Key on side opened.
Xs = The small touch piece for finger one (as well as covering first tone hole)
Plus the various touch keys as follows :- LH = G# B Bb Eb.
RH = Bb F C C# Eb
