 Re: How to play Armenian style?

That's an awesome link! I've not had much practice with mid-eastern and Armenian clarinet playing, but much of it is similar to Romani clarinet playing too!

I have been trying for years to develop this kind of playing and like you I'm classically trained...The tone quality/timbre is the thing to start with before dealing with bending notes. You should strive for a singing, vocal, light sound. Pitch bending and portamento or gliss is easier with a light sound.

Listening and continuing to try to sound like this and PRACTICE is the best thing to work on it...

There's also a website called Greek and Turkish Clarinet that can provide you with many ideas and more videos. They've got an active discussion board too.
