Abstract

The problems with which this paper will deal will be limited to the fingerings and/or slide positions and their effect upon intonation and technique as well as a few recommendations for checking the intonation of a new instrument. Other problems relative to embouchure, inferior instruments,

or selection and use of a proper mouthpiece will not be discussed as they would present too many problems which are so variable as to be confusing to the main topic.It will be the purpose of this paper to explain the uses of these valve and slide combinations, to explain their weaknesses, to show possible supplementary fingerings, to explain the evolution of our present brass wind instruments and to show some possible fingering combinations which may not ordinarily be used but which would be helpful.
