F# fingering

Post by damjan » Tue Mar 04, 2003 5:21 pm

E is only used for trills from E to F# (holding E and trilling F).
Otherwise it produces a lower quality of sound for F# than fingering with D and
for that reason, it is not used as a regular fingering for F#. I suggest that
you practice learning it correctly, even if it is harder at first, it will
produce a better result in the long run. All the best.
