JimLucas Posted June 13, 2007 Share Posted June 13, 2007 i use the jeffries layout. on my right-hand side, the top, "accidental" row has a high "a" on the push near the far right end. i use this baby whenever a high "a" occurs as a long "rest" note. it is great for bellows control, and greatly reduces the stress of playing in a-major, where so many notes occur on the pull. i also use it for long high "a" notes in other keys as well. couldn't live without it. Two other things the push A is good for, in either hand: Phrases where A is played in quick succession with other push notes, notably G#, but also E and C#. Against a "bass" note of low A or E, which on many instruments are found only on the push. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
