Bassoon is awesome!!!! I've always been soooo fascinated with it!! lol. Yeah, one of my pretty good friends decided she wanted to change up from clarinet, so she learned bassoon...and now she's one of our state's best, after knowing it for only one year. And I don't think she ever took private lessons from a professional, either.

Congratulations to your friend! That's a great achievement. I think it often happens like that, so fast, when people find the right instrument after often years of struggle or lesser achievement on another instrument.
I tortured a trumpet for many years until I was very reluctantly made to play the tuba. Instant success, similar to your friend. And I remember a student at one of my schools, whom we pushed (gently!) onto bassoon from clarinet, due to an oversupply of clarinets. She took to it, and is still playing bassoon, as a serious hobbyist, fifteen years later.

I will admit to getting a lot of enjoyment from watching bassoon players ( I get a lot of time spare in orchestra!). Just the activity of the thumbs is astonishing - all those keys for one thumb!

That's awesome. Aww...I'm sure the tuba couldn'ta been THAT bad off...I mean, can't most brass players play all the brass instruments (to an extent) once they learn one anyways?

But the thing about the Bassoon so much is that stupid wisper key . But I got use to it, I was use to register keys, and valves.

Yeah! I agree once you know how to play it right that instrument will sounds very awesome!
I would prefer it compared to a flute and this is instrument had so many appearance on the world stage. But sadly most of people watching thought that it was a flute.
So sad and I wonder why they designed it just like the flute. Anyway to cut the story short that instrument although being recognized as flute would stay as the best wind instrument.
