Fingering Chart for Heckel-System Bassoon
Octave: A1 to F3
fingering chart includes trill fingerings, which are fingerings designed for rapid
alternation between two notes at an interval of a minor second (semitone) or a
major second (whole tone) apart. Many of these fingerings can also be used as
alternate fingerings for some fast passages. Keys to be trilled are indicated
in red. When more than one key is to be trilled,
the keys should be simultaneously pressed and simultaneously released, unless
the description says to alternate pressing and releasing the keys. The fingerings
apply to Heckel-system (German) bassoons and contrabassoons.
fingering scheme explains the text and keys used
to depict fingerings.
