Title: I finally started to play clarinet again!
Post by: DaveLeBlanc on January 17, 2020, 08:26:49 PM
Guys, I haven't played clarinet recreationally in 2 years at this point.

I decided to pull my old contra alto clarinet out of storage, dust it off, and give it a go.

I have to say, it's very nice to be back in the saddle. I can't tell you how much I truly missed the sweet, low, and resonant sound of the contra clarinet.

Wow! Glad to hear you're playing again!
Avoid burnout. Take up the Irish flute.  :)

Good for you Dave!

I've been stuck on alto sax (happily).  :)

I have been playing contra alto (along with bass) in a group since the fall, and it has been lots of fun.  Nothing quite like playing those low "Pedal" notes and shaking the place (and my head) with that amazing rumble.
