I wondered if I could ask a question about keeping fingers moving exactly in time when playing? I'm trying to play Georgie, by Emma Johnson and really struggling to cross the break legato without a tiny silence creeping in between the notes. I think that the problem may be that my fingers are coming down at fractionally different times, but it is really hard to correct that. I wondered if anyone might have any ideas?
I can manage fine if I am only opening the register key, but as soon as I move even one other finger as well as the register key, the silence creeps in. I am recording myself on Soundbooth on my computer and the silence is clearly visible on the graph, as well as audible on playback.
The jumps I am trying to do are from E up to C, then F up to C and then G up to E.
I'm playing a new Yamaha Custom CX with a J&D Hite D mouthpiece and a Vandoren V12 2.5 reed.
I would be really grateful for any ideas. I previously asked on this thread below, but still can't seem to manage it. http://test.woodwind.org/clarinet/BBoard/read.html?f=1&i=473701&t=473701
