Bassoon and Contrabassoon Fingering Chart

This is a fingering chart for my BASIC fingerings.  I will add to this over time.  I will also make changes and corrections.  I use these fingerings on my Fox 601.  

The contra fingerings are what I have found to work best for me when playing on a Fox contra.  I make no claim to their successful use with any other maker.  I also make no claim that these fingerings are "right" but only that I use them.  


  1. Hey there-

    Your fingering chart has interesting left hand front keys - do you have offset keys + a high F key, or a different configuration?
