Dave's music video of the week / Imagine by John Lennon
« on: March 22, 2020, 10:34:54 AM »
My tongue-in-cheek take on Lennon's Imagine

Imagine there's no loo roll
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to wipe our butts on
No sanitizer too
Imagine all the people
Sneezing every day, achoo-ooo
You may say I'm a sneezer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you will shake hands
And the world will be as one.

We need to keep practicing. Don't let coronavirus kill the music. And keep smiling

I've had this thing about 2 years now and I still can't play a tune properly on it. Beginners will struggle to get below low E. I can just about get D.
When I got my clarinet I was playing tunes within a week!

All about Clarinets / Bach on clarinet?
« on: March 19, 2020, 01:46:14 PM »
I suppose not many people play Bach on clarinet but, well, why not?
Played in memory of one of my tarantulas who died.
By the way, those who use Legere synthetic reeds, how do you wash them after playing? I've been running mine under warm water, then tissue drying.

All about Clarinets / Cheap synthetic reed v a Lègére
« on: February 20, 2020, 01:32:21 PM »
A while ago I got a cheap synthetic reed from Wish. It's not great. But was practically free.
Recently I bought a Lègére synthetic reed, strength 2 ½, definitely not cheap. But there's a huge difference!

All about Clarinets / Dodgy Maintenance video?

Came across this. Looks a bit dodgy to me, even for a plastic instrument.

All about Clarinets / What extra key is this?
« on: December 08, 2019, 08:06:18 AM »
I spotted this picture on Instagram. Is this a boehm clarinet or a different system with that low (Eb) key?

All about Clarinets / Method books
« on: December 02, 2019, 02:44:50 PM »
I really could do with a good method book, but it needs to be spiral bound so it can sit on my music stand.

I love this little pin badge my partner bought for me

Every damn time!

All about Clarinets / New boards?
« on: September 03, 2019, 05:41:44 AM »
Well this is new. I just come here from the link on my blog and I see a whole host of new fora! I swear they weren't there the other day, yet some of the posts date back to 2016!
Nice to see the forum expanding .

Dave's music video of the week / Somewhere over the Rainbow

I squeak a little but I just need to keep my embouchure tight! I have a silly looking exercise to help with that...

All about Clarinets / Getting the second register
« on: August 17, 2019, 11:52:20 AM »
I can just about go into the second octave but only so far up. Around about the C hole it starts to crack and further up, nothing, no matter how hard I blow or how I change my embouchure. I'm probably not really ready for that range yet, but what exactly are you supposed to to get that high?

All about Clarinets / Vintage clarinet

Spotted in a general museum today. No info tag for it.

All about Clarinets / Back to basics with Galper
« on: May 04, 2019, 11:57:44 AM »
I got a copy of the Galper Clarinet method and I need to get on with it. Sure I can play fun tunes  but reading from sheet is a different beast. Also, I've neglected my clarinet in favour of other instruments and  my fingers have forgotten what notes on the sheet go with what keys, so I need this simple practice!
