    Just wondering if anyone could help with the fingerings for these shakes. All of them are in Retracing by Elliot Carter. I’ve searched through Gerald Corey’s book and the Essential’s of Bassoon Technique and can’t find anything helpful.

    Many thanks!

    I’ve been working on this piece for a while after just performing the Yun Monolog. For the d to f# shake play d with o x x/ o o o with the whisper key down. Trill with the f# trill key (high Eb) key with your first finger. You may have to relax your embouchure a bit, but this works for me. The F to C is straight forward, as are the other tremolos which I am using all full fingerings. Let me know if you have any further questions, I would be glad to help.

    Oh yes the b to d# I forgot about. Play b normally and alternate between the b and a simple forked x o x in the left hand for the d#.
