Alternate Fingering Chart for Five- or Six-Key Charanga Flute

Second Octave: D5 to C#6

This fingering chart includes both basic fingerings and alternatives that are more appropriate in some passages. Some alternate fingerings are designed for fast passages, while others modify the tone, color, or pitch at normal and extreme dynamic levels. These fingerings are intended for the French five-key charanga flute and may not apply to similar French or Irish models.

The fingering scheme explains the text and keys used to depict fingerings and briefly describes the charanga flute in general.
