The Treble (2)
Occasionally, it is necessary to play lower F# and lower G# on the treble; these are produced by using the small holes at the lower end of the recorder as shown in example 28. To play
F#, for example, one only of the lower small holes is covered, instead of both when Fnat is played. The octave exercise shown in example 28 should also be practised, for it will help con­siderably in creating greater facility in fingering the various notes.
