G on Recorder

To play the note G on recorder we must remove all the fingers of the right hand, stop, not all !

The thumb can be used as a support point and as a reference finger to cover the holes again.

So, all the holes that the right hand covers will be free and we leave the thumb resting on the same place.

Take a look at this illustration of G on a recorder  and remember that we also have a high G on recorder that we will study later.
