    I don't have so much experience with microtonal music, but have worked with various tuning temperaments.

    However of all the musicians I've recorded, I have found singers to be very good at using non standard intervals, for example being able to differentiate and pitch in meantone if required.

    using microtones for expression within tonal music is very common and I always chuckle a little when I see/hear people strive to make a tuner needle hit "0." There are many great performances recorded in jazz and blues in which players are sharp or flat by different amounts- and we may not want t any other way.

    In my own recording once I had tools that "improve" the tuning (pitch correction, auto tune, Melodyne and now Flex pitch) I try them out on my saxophone, only to abandon them in favour of the "out of tune" note that works better to my ears. Sometimes as much as 30 cents.

    However i would not use fingerings, preferring to use embouchure to affect pitching.

    The Answer is yes/no. At 1/6 of a tone, you're talking 1/3 of a half-step, so 33- cents on a tuner. Between the Netti/Weiss book 1/4, 1/8 tone, and intonation fingerings (as found in Hello, Mr. Sax and elsewhere) you should arrive at a solution.

    If you have any more specific questions feel free to let me know. Beyond that it is just practice, I would use your tuner for this, to double check and correct your ear. Practice singing the intervals with the tuner as well so you can hear them better as you're playing to know if they're right.
