Hey, Im a young Bb French Horn Player, And Wondering, If anyone would help me with a few Fingerings on the chromatic Scale.
I Have been Playing The French horn For a few years now, So If anyone needs anyhelp with anything ,Feel Free to ask also x]
Ok, So, If you Could help With The Fingerings, I really could do with The whole Scale fingerings, Im Getting abit confused, as My tutor has written ''Bb Side'' Above a few notes, But, For example, I get to D, And As it says 'Bb Side' Im playing it with 1+2 valve,And the Trigger, But, Then, The next note Is actually written DBb.. [Flat] So, I'm Quite stuck on what to Do!, Would be excellent if i could have some help! - Thanks ,
Stephanie! x

On double horns, which is what I assume you are playing on, there are two sides to a horn. The f side (no trigger) and the B flat side (which is used while holding the trigger down.

Anything below and including the G in the staff will be played with the F side of the horn. G# (A flat) and everything above that will be played with the B flat side of the horn.

So I will give you fingering for a C two octives below the staff up to the high C above the staff.

(Starting on the C two octives below the staff played on the F side of the horn):
C-open, C#-123, D-13, D#-23, E-12, F-1, F#-2, G-open, G#-23, A-12, A#-1, B-2, C-open

(Starting on the C below the staff still on the F side, the last note of the first set I gave you):
C-open, C#-12, D-1, D#-2, E-open, F-1, F#-2, G-open, |Start holding the trigger down for the rest of these notes to be played on the b flat side of the horn!!! Do NOT let it go.|G#-23, A-12, A#-1, B-2, C-open

(Starting on the C in the staff with the trigger down, the last of the previous set).
C-open, C#-23, D-12, D#-1, E-2, F-open, F#-2, G-open, G#-23, A-12, A#-1, B-2, C-open

Anything higher then the high C will be played with the same fingers as the last set.


I hope this helps. Notes that are sharp being the same as the note above them being flat. (D# and E flat, etc etc).


Please let me know if this helps, if it does but you're still looking for me post another comment saying what. Good luck.

The staff is the set of five lines that the notes sit on, below, or above. That scale you gave me looks like it's starting on the c below the staff, up to the G, and back down the to C again. At which point when going back down you would go back to the f side for the middle g and lower.

E# = F.

Hmm. As for fingers on the F side, the repeat over and over and over.

F-1, F#-2, G-open, G#-23, A-12, A#-1, B-2, C-open, C#-12, D-1, D#-2, E-open, F-1st.

This will work for the f below the staff all the way until you can't play anymore, but I strongly suggest going to the B flat side of the horn when you get to the G# in the staff.

I hope this helps.

By the way, I just gave you the scale going up, going back down would in turn be the opposite.

Well, I already have that!, Im really confused now.
As, The notes That i have include Bflats coming down.. aka: Eb i guess 2nd valve? db i dont know.. Cb.. Im really just totally confused.. I guess ill just leave it to my music tutor.. I never knew a scale could be so confusing!!

If you wanted to help me still, I could scan the scale i have on this paper to you, and maybe you could see where im comming from? If You would like to do that, Please add ''omg-its-stephanie@hotmail.com'' to your msn.. Thanks P.s:
