Notes on the Fingerings
If you are a beginning student and have small or narrow fingers, make sure to cover all of the holes completely. Low G is the largest tone hole on the clarinet, so place your finger carefully to cover it. If you do not cover the tone holes completely, the clarinet will squeak.
