Thanks Dick! That gives me a lot to think about and work on.

I guess that what it boils down to is that unless I find someone skilled to try my old recorder, I may never know whether I’m struggling with an instrument that is just difficult or impossible to play well. (I live in a rural area and don’t know anyone who plays recorder.) My recorder was inherited from a relative who I did not know; so I don’t know how old it is or how good it ever was. Is it likely that an old wooden recorder either needs work or is just inherently difficult to play?

Thanks again.
