Thanks Hank, yes I see what you mean.

I did originally mean just to play at home but I'm now running to keep up with my son who is very musical and apparently now plays the French horn quite competently. This is a new development that kicked off when I took him to the woodwind shop to have my clarinet looked at, back around the time of my first post here.

We rented one for three months and now he'd bashing out tunes and raring to sign up to an orchestra. He's very sound sensitive though, and I have absolutely no idea whether he will last ten minutes in an orchestra room, which makes it really hard to know whether to spend serious money on a clarinet for me. Last time I took him to an orchestra concert he only lasted half an hour, before fleeing the scene.

The bass clarinet is hilarious by the way, and I love it. I'm gradually repairing it, one key at a time and I have six working notes now. It's a little bit like a really stylish foghorn.
