La Vie en Rose-Edith Piaf
« on: April 13, 2018, 06:35:22 AM »
I heard someone playing this on trumpet and I thought I'd give it a go on my clarinet. I had to transpose a little and I'm not 100% familiar with the ending so I kinda made that part up.

That's good, Larry. I suggest play it slower, break it into phrases. Repeat those short phrases over and over until they are smooth, and then some more.

Practice the wider intervals until you can do them without the in-between notes.

In summary - divide and conquer.

Also, there's no need to look at the camera/phone as you play. That can interfere with your blowing angle. ... Keep it up!
