Default Re: Pinkie Finger Down for Quick C?

The point at which one might--perhaps--play an open C is the point of actual perception. It would be interesting to test experienced players, who cannot see the player's fingering, on detecting an open C or not. If the off-tone is even slightly perceptible, then end of story.

Who actually hears the open C, when played virtually as a 64th note? As has been pointed out, we do play grace notes in alternate positions. Tradition has it that those grace notes do not register as unpleasant tones.
