 Rhapsody in Blue
Date:   2018-08-19 04:52

When I slide my fingers off the clarinet to play the Rhapsody in Blue gliss, I get one or more of the following:

1. a faint "train whistle" type sound

2. nothing at all, despite air being blown in to the instrument, or

3. an awful high screech that sounds like something multiphonic or a higher partial.

What am I doing wrong? Thanks.
