After all my excitement yesterday I thought I would actually do some clarinet practice in a spare few minutes ...
Guess what -
The finger is fine, its the clarinet that has died.
As my hand was aching last night I must have twisted the upper barrel badly and have managed to bend a couple of keys - so this afternoon I am off to hospital again - But this time clarinet hospital!!
Its now this afternoon!!
I have just got in and things seem OK - Jessica said that it looked like an old damage that had just twisted that little bit extra as the corks were drier with lack of use.
So - she "hit it with a hammer" and now everything seems OK - and she gave a good report to the general health of both of my clarinets - So that was even better news!!
