 Squeak on moving from open G up to high E
Author: SunnyDaze

Hi,

I'm still struggling with moving legato from low to high notes and I wondered if I could ask again for a spot of advice? I did ask before but I'm still utterly unable to do it right.

The hardest thing I'm trying to do is to go from open G to high E and it's not even theoretically that hard to get the fingering right, but I get an almighty shriek from clarinet every time.

I took my clarinet to the shop and it is apparently working just right, with no leaks.

I have been gradually readjusting my fingers so that the movement becomes more and more tiny between the two notes. I'm also trying to change my embouchure to the right position for the second note, before I actually quite make the change, but the reed still goes wild when I actually make the change.

The only thing that I can find that helps, is to very very lightly flick the reed with the tip of my tongue to steady it as the vibration changes from the low note to the high note, and I just wondered if you think that that is a reasonable thing to do?

I'm playing a new Yamaha Custom CX clarinet, with a J&D Hite E mouthpiece, and a Rigotti Gold 2.5 light reed, and Silverstein A-frame ligature. The barrel is now a Yamaha standard barrel for the model, but shortened to 62mm to keep me in tune.

Thanks so much for thinking about it. :-)

Jennifer
