We know 3 fingerings, as below
(1) Side-Bb : for # key scales such as B major,F# major ( In concert tune,
A major, E major)
(2) bis : for "b"(flat) key scales such as F,Bb,Eb,Ab major (
in C.T., Eb, Ab, Db, Gb, B major)
(3) G-fingering + any right finger : Trill, #-Scale Arpeggio
By the way, MB sometimes plays 4-note-set phrase going chromatical down
How about the fingering for this phrase ?
Among lots of video, I've found such kind of scene, that I can check MB
This is played at the solo in a tune titled "Above and Below"
.(Brecker Bros. live on 1992)
The phrase is consisted of repeated 4 notes which goes down chromatically.
However, after the middle of phrase, it goes without regularity.
This may be an unintended phrase, anyway, it sounds fantastic.
Here, MB makes 4 times Bb.
The fingering is --- oh, MB uses side key at all Bb !
On the video frame, only left hand can be seen.
At the note of Bb, 1st and 2nd finger of left hand press buttons, that
means right finger presses side-Bb key.
Thus, I come to know MB uses "Side-Bb" in this kind of chromatic
phrase ( not absolutely saying ).
Yes, obviously, on the flat base key (F or Bb etc.) phrase, MB uses bis-key.
