Hi Greg,

Welcome to the forum. As a beginner myself, I went through a number of books/methods. The first one (as in book 1 of pretty much all methods ) are very similar as they assume the student knows nothing about the clarinet, as well as nothing about music notation. So they all teach the basic rudiments/technique using simple tunes. There is so much to learn at the beginning and most people will recommend getting at least a few lessons to start off right. I don't know your musical background or aspirations or what kind of music you would like to play. At the beginning you mostly need to learn how to form a decent embouchure and fingering to produce a nice clarinet tone. If you think you would like jazz or modern clarinet music, one book I got recently is "The Jazz Method for Clarinet" by John O'Neill. It is a great book with a lot of material.
