All about Clarinets / Two Major and Minor Blues Licks
« on: March 24, 2021, 12:33:40 AM »
I thought it was about time I posted a video of some playing for comment / observations / tips etc

I'm a whisker under 10 months in on this journey. Amongst many other things, I'm working through a wonderful (non clarinet) book called The Blues Scale by Dan Greenblatt. It's slow going, not because it's difficult, but because I find it hard to memorise the licks in the book. Anyway, these are four licks I came up with being played over one of Dan's backing tracks.

Clarinet is a Noblet Artist 45 with a (loose!) Hite Premier mouthpiece and a Vandoren 2.5 reed.

All about Clarinets / Hello

Can't find an "Introduction" section so hope it's okay to post here?

Larry S posted a mention of this place on a Facebook Beginners Group so I thought I'd come and take a look and join in. Hope that's okay, too?

I played 50 years for a couple of years at the grand old age of eight. Never got very far back then but always kept my old B&H Regent and my copy of A Tune A Day. I dug both out last June during the first UK lockdown and have been playing pretty much every day since, save for a fortnight's break when I had a wisdom tooth out. I'be made it to the end of A Tune A Day Book #1 - something I never managed 50 years ago - and have recently invested in a Buffet B12 from the local classifieds.

That's about it.

Cheers
Derek
