For this installment of the "Finger Gym," Mr. Edmund-Davies presents one basic exercise in eight major keys: G, Ab, A, Bb, B, C, Cb, and D. He suggests "continuing up the register of the flute, as this exercise becomes highly useful for those awkward top octave fingerings." He also gives a few suggested fingerings for flute exercises and etudes in general. Follow this link to read the complete Finger Gym #2 post on his blog. It has a terrific tip at the very end!
