Trill Fingering Chart for Oehler- and Albert-System Clarinet

Chalumeau Register: E3 to B4

This fingering chart includes trill fingerings, which are fingerings designed for rapid alternation between two notes at an interval of a minor second (semitone) or a major second (whole tone) apart. Many of these fingerings can also be used as alternate fingerings for some fast passages. Keys to be trilled are indicated in red. When more than one key is to be trilled, the keys should be simultaneously pressed and simultaneously released, unless the description says to alternate pressing and releasing the keys. These fingerings apply to all sizes of Oehler- and Albert-system clarinet unless specified otherwise.
