 Re: Hello! Finally going back to the clarinet and need advice!

Interesting reading this thread about memory.
I played clarinet when I was 16 in 1954 but stopped after a few months because my mouth became sore.
At the age of 75 I bought a clarinet and started taking lessons again.
The interesting thing is that as soon as I picked up the instrument my fingers fitted (almost) correctly over the holes and I was able to get my bottom register notes instantly.
So in some way I had 'remembered' after nearly 60 years.
