 Re: most difficult key to play in?

I'm not having trouble knowing what the notes are (I'm doing it by ear anyway, because I don't have a copy of Barrett but remember the exercises from before) I'm having trouble with remembering the patterns and some of the coordination, when going from one note to another that tends to have "a note in between" because I'm not getting everything down or up at the same time. I'm not having trouble choosing fingerings, since I know what is coming and can decide from the choices available (my primary was violin, in which you can play a set of notes in many different ways, usually, so the problems presented by that kind of thing on oboe are not new. Even a double horn has a lot of choice in how series of notes can be fingered, and you choose the one that works best.) My goal is to learn all the fingering patterns up front, coincident with doing a lot of sight reading so I can walk in to a community band and play. I am not spending time perfecting low level pieces because that doesn't fit my goal; I'm trying to simply raise my physical level as fast as feasible. I was just wondering if the C#/Db scale is generally considered difficult to learn.
