 Sounding Lower notes
Author: ClearClarity

Greetings fellow bassoonists

I just started bassoon, and I'm having a hard time making the lower notes make a sound, especially Bb in the lower register. I can make it sound, but after some time it make like a weird ship sound thats like malfunctioning or something. I use a lark bassoon (if that helps) and I played sax for 5 years. Can someone help me?
And does the reed factor in my problem?

Also does anyone know a good book for beginners? Like etudes and stuff. Just to help me with bassoon. Thanks
