Alternate Fingering Chart for Oboe

Third Octave: C#6 to C#7

This fingering chart includes both basic fingerings and alternatives that are more appropriate in some passages. Some alternate fingerings are designed for fast passages, while others modify the tone, color, or pitch at normal and extreme dynamic levels. These fingerings are the same on oboes and English horns unless specified otherwise.
