This is me playing Hey Jude by the Beatles on my bass clarinet. I've been working on it for a little bit, so let me know what you think! Comments and criticisms are appreciated! Also, if you comment with a song you'd like to hear, i might attempt to play it. Thanks!

good musicality, but your vibrato is annoying, its not meant for clarinet or bass clarinet, so don't do it unless you are expert. It ruins your release, you play too loosely at times. Your bridge notes are strained, as are high notes. Play every note from low E one at a time, and with each low note, hold out for 4 beats (at least) at 60bpm, and add register key to the note for same duration. Focus on maintaining a constant air speed. I think you need to lower your ligature, and possibly reed. Reed should be just visible from other side of mouthpiece, and top of ligature should be in line with the line on the reed. Make sure the part of your mouth on the reed with the most pressure is where the reed leaves the mouthpiece. Think about playing straight down the reed to eliminate the unfocused sounds in this piece.

pretty cool.

there're a few points that sound halting.

the mike either wants to be about midway up the instrument, or at the bell.

work up to some harder reeds. when you're able to use them (such as vandoran, 3.5-4) comfortably, go back down a half step and try the high notes again.


(Bass clarinet is one of my favorite instruments)

Very Nice

Im glad you recorded this. Very entertaining to listen to. I too play instruments and It takes lots of practice to get it in one go. Again great job!
