    High-Range Fingering Chart

    I've been working on the high notes, above high C, etc., but can't find any fingering chart that goes any higher than about E, F, or G.

    Does anyone know of a fingering chart for notes up to double High C, etc.?

    Or, do people just let the chops find the notes and leave the valves open up there in the stratosphere?

    74,

    Don't know about most people, but I just use the same fingering as if the note was on the staff. High C open, D-1, E-open, F-1, G-open, etc.

    Works for me.

    C=0, C#=2, D=0, Eb=2, E=0, F=1, F#=2, G=0, G#=23, A=12, Bb=1, B=2, C=0. Above double C you can push just about any valve that you want. It makes sense to keep the fingerings the same as an octave or 2 lower so you don't get harmonically lost in one of the clouds up there!

    Re: High-Range Fingering Chart

    In general I would suggest that the same fingering as the octave below, but if you find that some of those don't work for you, try something else - frankly, if you are of a standard where you are exploring above F/G, you are probably good enough to work it out for yourself.
    There are no set rules, it is a case of what works for you, with your equipment and your chops.

    Thanks for the input on fingering those high notes.

    Now, all I'll have to do is keep working on being able to play them effectively.

    How much time did you spend on doing Clarke up two octaves before perfecting it?
