Hi peeps
I have been playing a yas 275 (1st ever musical instrument) for all of 9 weeks now and getting confused over keywork for b flat.
There appears to be at least 3 ways to play it--one of which involves L1&L2+RS3.
Which one would it be best for me to concentrate on as a beginner?
If the one I have listed above is the preferred one---which finger goes to RS3?
Please be patient as I am not in the 1st flush of youth and even though Ido have a teacher, it is a group class, which to be honest,is not ideal for me.
Many Thanks in advance for any replies.

That's the best fingering to start working on IMO. The other two are also useful.

Use your index finger on the side key - not your finger tip but the 3rd joint, ie the joint furthest from the fingertip.

That was a quick response.:thankyou:
"not your finger tip but the 3rd joint, ie the joint furthest from the fingertip." Thats the knuckle?
Many Thanks

"it's the proximal phalange!"
Sounds positively rude!
But I now fully understand.
Many Thanks.
p.s
Less said about the dvd/ppal, the better.:w00t:
