First Octave Ab-G#
or X | XXX |K 0OXX | O off the knee
This note is obtained playing a normal on the knee G plus opening the G#/AB key at the back of the chanter. As with the F natural key when coming down the scale have the key ready opened so that when you close the A finger hole you get a good clean note. You can also of course slide down to a G# by slowly closing the A hole. A slide up from G can be obtained by gradually opening the key from a G note start.
This note can be played off the knee. It is the same fingering with the chanter raised.
Vibrato - Try the f hole finger.
Tuning 5 cents sharp
G# / AB
X | XXD | 0OXX | X
or X | XXD | 0OXX |O off the knee
If you do not have keys the note can be fingered by Half holing the A hole. A little awkward but OK for accidentals, maybe not so good for playing in the key of A. I suppose it could be played off the knee with the same fingers.
Vibrato - Try the F hole finger.
Tuning dependant on players skill.
