3rd Finger Right Hand Alternate fingerings for the clarinet…

I personally feel the most important alternate fingering we can know inside and out is the use of the 3rd finger of the right hand for B naturals, F-sharps and E-flats…. And before you say that is hard and makes no sense.. remember that flute players use the 3rd finger of the right hand for their F-sharp all the time as their main fingering….. the middle finger of the right hand is the flute players alternate fingering for the F-sharp…

The 3rd finger of the right hand is also great for the 1&3 fingerings for the D-sharp/E-flat, A-sharp/B-flat… It is so much easier to move the first 2 fingers of the right hand at the same time  and evenly than move the 1st and 3rd fingers of the right hand at the same time and evenly.

Why do we need alternate fingerings? This is a simple question to answer.. for technique, alternate tone colors for the same note and to make our lives as clarinet players easier….

Once again, I hear players say “I will use alternate fingerings if I  need to”… The only way to be able to use an alternate fingering is to practice using that alternate fingering… you will need to learn how to balance the tone color of the alternate fingering, learn the possible pitch problems, understand how the fingering responds and many more important things about each alternate fingering…
