C is for Clarinet
Last year I’d entertained the thought of selling this beauty. She is a Buffet B-flat Clarinet R13. We have been together since about 9th grade, so over 3o years. She and I had much fun all the way through college marching band. I played some before kids, performing with our local community band and teaching lessons for a short season.
So I thought I’d take her in to our local music store and discuss a trade for some stringed instruments. I have a great desire to learn something along the lines of guitar, ukulele, dulcimer. Someone had asked me “Do you think you might play again?” Well, I haven’t all these years, so I thought I’d get her out and see what I thought. Well, I’m still smitten with her. I think she and I still have places to go we had not traveled previously. So, I’m thinking she’s a keeper. And we’ll have to save our pennies for the other instruments. Isn’t she beautiful?
