Beginners are always asking- WHAT DO ALL THE THUMB KEYS DO?!? My Answer: EVERYTHING!
I must admit, as a Bassoonist my LEFT THUMB is THINNER than my RIGHT THUMB due to the number of Keys!
All of those keys can make the bassoon INTIMIDATING. I think that is why this has been the Most Requested video by students in Class Woodwinds and was subsequently my MOST VIEWED VIDEO. It is a super Speedy Chat through what all of the keys on the bassoon do, especially all the THUMB KEYS!
