I play tenor sax mostly but the sax I play 2nd most is bari. I want to start on clarinet, should i start on bass clarinet or Bb soprano?
When you figure out that the octave key isn't an octave key but a 12th key it'll blow your mind. I went from clarinet to sax and didn't find the transition too hard fingering-wise. What I found hardest was/is the embouchure. Clarinet is a much tighter embouchure. The lips and jaw have to be so much firmer than sax. I would say Bb soprano is the way to go. Start out with scales and arpeggios so you can get used to playing the break. That's the biggest challenge on clarinet, playing over the break. For me it seems a lot harder than sax.Um.... which one do YOU want to start on?
I say go for the soprano. It will kick your butt in a good way.
