I've been playing Jake's recorder, and I;ve been doing really well. i just have this ability to hear a tune and then pick it out on the recorder without reading the music for it.
However, the recorder is a little juvenile, so I've been thinking about a clarinet. I know they have a reed in them and that those can be tricky, but from what i can see the fingering on a clarinet is a lot like that of a recorder.
I've found one for $30 on eBay...and the bidding ends in an hour and a half. I'm not really interested in paying a ton for one, this is just for me to occupy myself with so I don't want to spend too much on it....
Do any of you have any advice for me?
