I'm talking about D6 and above. My fingering charts only go up to high d, but I've already figured out a couple semitones higher. Problem is they sound really really bad. They sound like they are being squeaked or overblown, but thats the only way I can produce them. Ive been practicing them, and got them to sound a little better by playing softer, which is real hard, because unlike the lower notes, you actually have to blow harder to get the correct tone.
I'm working on flute concierto (that I'm told was originally written for recorder) that goes up to and trills on high e. that would mean I'd need fingering for high f.
if anyone knows correct fingering i'd be really appreiciateve because i really don't want to have to take it an octave down.
Also does anyone know if the transverse flute is similar to recorder in respect to harmonic series etc. (please forgive me if I'm using this term wrong.)
my background is in trombone. Previously I had always assumed that brass instruments were the only instruments that could produce more than one tone with the same lengh of tubing (slide position etc), but with recorder there is actually more than just one that I had previously been aware. Is flute and other woodwinds like this too or are they a bit easier in this regard?
