    For those of you who like clarinets, carrots and jazz...

    Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and that which cannot remain silent.

    Hi Matt,
    I have just checked out the youtube ref.and was amazed.
    For others who have not done so, this guy, Linsey Pollak, manufactures a clarinet from a carrot, and proceeds to play a lively jazzy tune.
    Please tell me it isnt a hoax.
    Cheers John

    Hey John,

    It doesn't look like one to me. I wonder if there are any other musical fruits...

    There may be a pear (or two).
    Or how about similar treatment to a sugar cane

    Yeh, I was fooling about, I will have to use more smilies seriously you can make wind instruments out of just about any thing, in the demo they used a clarinet mouthpiece you could also use one from a Brass instrument, it gets a bit harder when you rely on just embouchure as in the Flute but it can still be done

    That is something really different, I think he does very well.

    Here is an ocarina with a difference.

    Hi Margaret.
    You keep producing odd surprises.
    A great trick but maybe better with a Jazz tune.

    Cheers John

    Hi John

    Well I am good at odd things, I agree about it being better with a jazz tune.
