    In Mason Jones’ transcription of Ravel’s Tombeau de Couperin for ww quintet, the last 3 measures of the Prelude has an E natural (5th line, tenor clef) going to the higher G natural above – does anyone know of a possible fingering for this shake? Thanks in advance for any future response/help. Jim

    Hey Jim,
    I’m playing the Jones Tombeau this weekend. I’m starting with a couple full fingered, then moving to this with the e-flat resonance key down.

    I recently learned that Paul Hanson does this move all the time. Once I knew he was doing it I heard it all over his solo playing.

    First finger, over blow to get the E, then trill the high Eb key, like Saxton said.

    Great – I’ll definitely try this! Thanks much.

    Another really good one from Juan de Gomar:

    LH 2 3 Eb RH 1 2 3 Ab
