 Re: Thoughts on Playing the Clarinet in Tune

Since I started this thread I would like to thank all the posters. I have learned much from it.
To the advanced players who would already know this information, just jump to #9.
I hope it is helpful to anyone who did know these points.

And to Licorice,
>>"Test left hand 12ths"
>>-Why not also test right hand 12ths?
The shorter pipe tells more about overall pitch problems. If the left hand is perfect, move to the right hand 12ths. I left that out by accident.

>>"Tune to the player 'up the ladder'"
>>-In my wind octet we often get the best results if we all adjust our tuning to >>the bass note. But different contexts may requite different approaches. I'm >>not sure why tuning to the person above you should be a rule of thumb?
In your group 'bass' is up the ladder.

>>"And the same note as a 5th in a chord, is a bit higher than if it is the root."
>>-"a bit higher" is really rather vague. Much more useful would be to know >>exactly how many cents higher or lower each interval should be tuned for >>pure intonation. Charts for this are readily available on the internet.
I hope you keep your chart on the stand next to your music for reference.
I use my ear and 'a bit' is useful enough.
