 Ring Key Oboe Fingerings
Author: almancer

Hi, I'm new to this site, so I apologize if this topic has already been convered. I have a Linton oboe with a ring key system. Can you please tell me what the fingerings are for this instrument or direct me to a site with a listing. My understanding is that the ring key fingering system is different from the plateau fingering system. Thanks for your help,

The basic fingerings are exactly the same for both models, but it's the trill fingerings that will differ between the ring key and plateaux models - the plateaux models having the advantage as the tuning on trills is better.

The main difference is the Ab-Bb (or G#-A#) trill which you do by playing Ab (xxxG#|ooo) and trill the upper of the two side keys for RH finger 1 (that's the key that curls over the side G# touch).
