I'm new. [Nov. 24th, 2009|06:13 am]

I've been playing the soprano recorder since age 17, and began on the sopranino leter on. Well, anyway, I have a few questions, here:

My dad bought me a tenor recorder one year for my birthday; I tried playing it off and on for a year or two after that, but haven't picked it up since. It's a little too big...any advice on how to hold it so that your fingers actually cover the holes while you play?

This is a strange question...I'm not sure if it's allowed...but: I bought a Yamaha fife; I've tried to play it, with to success....However, I put a yamaha soprano recorder's head/mouthpiece on it...and it played like a recorder! Any reason why?

OK...thank you all! Have a blessed day,

My tenor recorder has 2 keys on the bottom...anyway...I've heard that there are tenors that are a lot smaller than the normal-sized ones.

I think I saw one (a long time ago.) on Amazon...I really can't remember what company made it.

Also...my fife did play like a recorder...but had the same fingerings as the fife. Interesting; it gives me something else to practice, aside from the recorder.

Thank you so much!
