This is NOT a bassoon reed!

This uniquely annotated fingering chart covers the entire range of the bassoon up to G♯5 , that's 6 notes above the famous Rite of Spring solo. Modifications to improve slurs, intonation, and extreme dynamics are included. The diagrams are also color-coded to draw attention to often-neglected keys.

This fingering chart was created with two primary goals in mind: The first, to represent the optimal fingerings for most bassoons and players. However, every player’s setup, from instrument, to bocal, to reed, to each player’s anatomy is different. Every artist is entitled to and should make their own aesthetic and technical choices for managing their instrument. Thus the second goal of this chart is to inspire critical-thinking about each fingering’s unique traits in regards to intonation, timbre, resonance, and facility.

Updated version of the chart will be available periodically and FREE for those who have already purchased.
