Welcome aboard Basil. I am not a bassoon player but if I were to try a new instrument it would be the bassoon, and a baroque one at that. Can't afford it though.
Have you been playing long?
No. Only since Christmas but apart from the diabolical fingering it hasn't been as difficult as I expected although this might just be due to the fact that my bassoon has a lovely voice. Playing soprano saxophone probably made it easier to adjust to the small, double reed embouchure.
