 Re: books or tutorials on learning- a post script on lessons klezmer

Hi Jacky
I'm a classically taught clarinet player who has taken up klezmer later.
I found softer reeds helped, even if some tone is lost. Much easier to bend the notes. Also almost all the klezmer stuff is played an octave above the written music. I find the notes don't bend easily below middle C and really work best around G up.
There are some good players around Manchester. Regular klezmer dances in Chorlton and Kleznorth was a great meeting of likeminded folks in Derbyshire. Dates for KlezNorth 2011 in Youlgreave are April 1st - 3rd!
hope this helps!
Tom
