It covers all the notes on the oboe to the third octave G. The Thumb plate system is also known as the English System.

It covers all the oboe notes to the third octave G# and A. This system is conservatoire with an added thumb plate. Often used as a transitional instrument from thumb plate to conservatoire oboes.

It covers all the oboe notes to the third octave G# and A. The "international" or "professional" fingering system with no thumb plate.

All fingering diagrams have been derived from photographs of the oboe keys and holes, so that the diagrams look as natural as possible.

There are no confusing numbers and, in addition, practical alternative fingerings are shown.
