Is there a place where I can post an ad to sell my clarinet method book (I am the author and it is copyright by the publisher)?

Great stuff-- only 16 months playing is impressive. Nice tone, tasteful vibrato. Tonguing & connections the way it should be.

Wear the MASKS and get VACCINATED in the States. JESUS! 19 TOTAL cases today in Nova Scotia (it's high). We still have the mask mandate. Florida & Louisiana switching places as WORST place in the WORLD for Covid Delta?

Very good. I once heard a version of the entire piece played by trumpet and baritone horn-- in unison (octaves of course)-- with band acc.
I have my version on youtube playing C clarinet (The Pas, Manitoba 1995).

Yeah it's a weird screw. May not have anything to do with your problem. I found on some clarinets it has to be loosened (unscrewed) some or a whole bunch of other notes won't play.

I used Mitchell Lurie 3s back in the 70s. Found them to be quite good. I have used Vandoren 2.5s pretty much since then, as VanD 3s are too hard for me. When Vandoren went to numbering them like 2.5-3 decades ago I used those, but was glad when they went back to the usual rating method.

Welcome to the forum. I started clarinet about 57 years ago (private lessons-- my first teacher back then passed away in 2014 age 96 I think). I do remember A Tune A Day. Good book. When I started I used a thick book called "Foundation to Clarinet Playing". It took you from step one to pretty advanced. I believe it may still be in print, but at least no doubt available from ebay or somewhere online.

You learn something new all the time. Sounds a little high tech. for my skills. I have explored the other usuals-- rubber bands, scotch tape, bending stuff to a point, taping stuff closed that you infrequently need to function, but it leaks.

I'm unclear. What do you mean by "are reading ABC"? Reading where?
CDE on the Bb clarinet = concert (piano) pitch Bb,C,D.
