I get the impression that some recorders are more fussy than others, elemimele... and I guess moving between treble and descant might be a source of conflict as well... Maybe you're just doing something different? And I don't think recorders like changes in the weather (like we've been having here recently)... Even a longer fingernail (or one cut too short) can be enough to throw me sometimes... Hopefully,  it will pass... smile.png

I wish I could claim it were the instrument, Zixi (you're very kind), but it's definitely me; it's my main practice instrument which is the model I've played since first I began. I think it's that different pieces bring out different problems, and I've just hit a new problem - all another opportunity to learn. You're right about fingers: a minor gardening issue can throw me completely (thorn in a finger, minor cut or whatever). Sometimes also a good clean helps my recorder.
