Alternate Fingering Chart for Piccolo

First Octave: D4 to C5

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 specifically for piccolos. There is a separate alternate fingering chart for soprano, alto, and bass flute, which contains many alternate fingerings also applicable to piccolos.
