Multiphonic Fingering Chart for Boehm-System Soprano Clarinet

Arranged by lowest note of multiphonics

This fingering chart includes multiphonics fingerings, which are fingerings suited for playing two or more notes simultaneously. These fingerings apply to soprano Boehm-system clarinets. All notes are specified to the nearest quarter tone in terms of naturals (no symbol), quarter-tone sharps (), sharps (#), and three-quarter-tone sharps (). The fingerings are sorted by lowest note from lowest to highest pitch.

Multiphonics are fun for experimenting. Every fingering can play more than one note, and some fingerings allow the notes to be played simultaneously, like those listed above. As you discover new sounds and multiphonics, feel free to share the fingerings and have them posted here.
