There is another transpoition which is very useful-that of playing the C parts on the A clarinet. The rules are:
1 Add 3 flats or drop 3 sharps from the key signature
2 Play it as written in bass clef, but up 2 octaves.
It is easier than it sounds and offers us a further way of dealing with tricky passages. It is also a good way to 'brush up' on our bass cleff.
