    Sorry, Larry: I thought I had this information somewhere, but I cannot find it. What do we use for the seven trombone positions? Are they the same as the position signs that we use for strings, or is there a modified “fingering” for trombone positions 6 & 7? And what about the trigger (F attachment)?

    Hi, Dan.

    I’m way behind in answering these posts.

    The 6th and 7th positions can be shown by adding 1 and 2 respectively as a second cell to the 5th position sign (TN or Spec.Sym. entry required). 6th position is (13, 1) and 7th is (13, 12). I haven’t seen this in any code; it is just something somebody recommended to me when I did a trombone book once. It’s simpler that the string position marks. If anyone has proposed a marking for the trigger I haven’t run into it yet. Thank heaven it is not usual to find position markings in normal trombone music.
