Topic: Strange and exotic fingerings

I have seen some wonderful suggestions for good trills and sbakes in this section but always forget about looking here when I have a need.  Does anyone have a good method of recording these great ideas or do you, like me, see them when they're published, admire them, and then forget their usefulness only to get stuck in a similar situation later?

Looseleaf binder. One page per (edit:) pitch (end edit) or trill or shake.

Re: Strange and exotic fingerings

Your question (and Trent's comment) reminded me that a while ago I whipped up a printable blank fingering chart for just such jotting down of fingerings. It had just been languishing on my hard drive, but I've now posted it: http://davidawells.com/2013/02/blank-fi … art-paper/.

All great ideas.   I may get motivated to do a little work.  David, you must have one heck of a strong wrist!

Well, I'll admit that it took a few tries to get the bassoon level and the camera shutter open at the same time...
