 RE: Out of tune!

Pull your barrel to tune the left-hand notes first (middle G down to D). Then, if necessary, pull your middle joint to tune the right-hand notes (Low C down to E). Lip the sharp throat tones down as needed. Tuning is a compromise on most clarinets, you just have to learn your own horn. I recently tried out a new Selmer Signiture clarinet that was as "in tune" an instrument as I have ever played. If you can afford it, it's worth the price--about $2500.00. Good luck.
