Extended Finger Chart

First Octave Ab-G#

 

  

Oh, I got this far and found I had an Eb in the 3rd octave.

Number 17

G# / Ab

keyed

 

 

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

Number 18

G# / AB

fingered

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.
