 Re: Removing the top 3 trill keys?

Hey Ron,
I can help you out with minimizing right Thumb pain.
Get a small board not thick about 3 inches by 15 inches.
Stick it under your right thigh and let about 5 inches stick out in the front.
You then rest the Bell of the Clarinet on the board.
You can certainly do this at home when practicing, I know I do.
You could bring it when you play in Public, you might get a funny look or 2 but if it relieves the pain thats great.
I have never had other Clarinetists even comment when they see it, that also goes for Conductors as well.
And no the sound is not muffled by having the edge of the bell resting on this board.
Its actually pretty discreet.
I use this when practicing and rarely use it in public.
Its allowed me to practice as long as I like and my right thumb during practice is pain free.
