Hi Zevang. Thanks for that. I've often wondered what those are for but I personally have not reached that level of play. However in my initial fever flush of enthusiasm I bought a stack of recommended flute books - one of which is James Pellerite's (I think that's how you spell it) Modern Guide to Flute Fingerings.Hi Bo,
It's good to have these books as a reference. But I find it difficult to memorize all the stuff just because we keep what we really use and simply discard what we don't.
A good example is the alternative fingerings when we want to simplify a difficult passage, say, in the higher notes. It's good to know they exist, but it's worthless memorize them all when you wont use them at once.
So, the good thing about resources like these is knowing where you can find them, when you need them. Reading this book can be still a good thing because of that. It becomes your source for future reference
