just working on my grade 5 ABRSM jazz tenor and one of the tracks starts with a low A, so below low Bb, is there a false fingering for this note. Or any other means of achieving it?
Depends, dunnit. Temper, temper, temperament...
So Phil, do tell - was it an A or an A#?
All the more reason to play 'bass clarinet'...there you go 'Jules'..proof indeed..!!I think this is the ABRSM version, it says it is.
But it's just a Bb sheet, not tenor sax. Goes down lower that A, but looks OK to play an octave higher, although the second page isn't for checking
There are also clarinet and trumpet in Bb. Part just says Bb, it's not instrument specific and I didn't see a tenor sax version. My guess is that it's intended to be played an octave higher on tenor sax.
