Geoghegancalls the second octave pinchdnotes and states simply that morepressure is applied on the bag toachieve them. How this wasachieved with an open-endedchanter I just dont know, since itis difficult enough with the facil-ity of being able to stop thechanter ,Close examination of the finger-ing indicated by Geoghegan showsa number of similarities to theopen fingering on the Union pipechanger, for example E, G, A.Page 6 is entitled Of the Flatsand Sharps and reads as follows:A sharp is a sounding of aNatural Note to half a Notehigher, a Flat is likewise asounding a Natural Note to halfa Note lower. So that the great-er Part of the Notes being thusdivided into half Notes they arecommonly calld Flat & Sharps,the former whereof are usuallymarkd thus ,the other thusfor the easier explaining ofwhich I have made the wholeScale of the Gamut ascending,wherein all these half Notes areset down with a Table as in thefirst scale to shew what Fingersto raise or keep stopt. In thisScale it must be observd thatover D sharp, the note E ismarkd flat to signify that theyare both performd in one andthe same Manner, likewise Ala-mire flat is performd in thesame Manner with G sharp andit must be noticd in the Scale,that over G sharp in the Placeof A there is a Mark thus tosignify that A flat is the samewith G sharp.6
