 Tenor recorder
Author: Meri Williams

I have recently been given a Hohner tenor recorder.
I've previously only played descant recorder and flute, so this is new to me.

2 questions:

1. I'm having trouble getting Aflat / Gsharp (1st octave) to play in tune.
When I use the standard fingering the note sounds very sharp. I've tried a couple of alternates that I got off a recorder website. These play more in tune, but the tone is poor. Any clues?

2. My tenor has a key over the low C hole - ie. not a double hole. So how do I play Csharp / Dflat ?

Any suggestions would be most welcome.
