I suspect hotboy has a different edition than I do (I have the Martin Shuring?) edition. The page number he gave me was the end of Sonata number 2. However, it appears most patterns are addressed in the exercises (I'm on 13-16 now.)
I did note that I haven't seen any pitches (maybe I just haven't found them yet) above two-leger-line D. When taking lessons I got up to the G above that, but was just messing around.

My major problem (other than reeds) at this age is cementing new fingerings; I don't know how many times I've looked up that two leger line C#, always having to go look it up AGAIN the next day. However, I have a lot of built-in hand facility from life-long piano and violin, so that is not a blockade. Having been a violin major with a "famous teacher," I learned how to learn an instrument and so know that scales and arpeggios are where you start, and all kinds of patterns with those.

Around here, the amateurs tend to lack musicality, and a few of them can't find intonation anywhere; but so far the ones that are playing in the groups often have technique quite beyond what mine currently is. Hopefully my physical health holds up long enough for me to reach that level, if I don't lose interest. The reed thing may stop me yet. And of course in the community group world, once you have a chair you don't give it up until death do you part. Easier to move somewhere where they need an oboe/cor than wait for a chair to open up.
