Being a beginner it is difficult to compose a sensible question but it seems like when the reed gets very wet that is the end of my ability to play.
It's perhaps not quite as simple as that. But is a sticky, water logged reed a problem generally?
Yes it seems to get soft and essentially unplayable. So I'll try loosening my embouchure, and my corset for that matter.the reed getting really soft as it gets wetter? Cos if it's the reed getting softer, you could try loosening your embouchure - and maybe a slightly harder reed.
I guess they start working well enough once the're dry again.
I wish I could say I was surprised by the ribaldry and catch penny horseplay that my heart-felt question has unaccountably provoked.
