Yes, but how do you "read" others on this forum? I mean we don't hear how someone plays who comes with some questions regards possible improvements in her/his playing. Since we don't hear there is a huge amount of guessing going on, and advice given on such a base. Maybe it is not the blind leading the blind, but the deaf leading the dumb in this situation. Nobody can truly act as teacher here. Its just the wrong relationship.
If no one can act as teacher (which I agree with somewhat - this is not a lesson), how come we can and do learn from each other? Learning is occuring, therefore someone, whether they mean to or not, has taught someone something.
We need not only clips of flute playing from so called accomplished players who like to give advice, but also of anyone asking for advice!
Why? Is this so the non-teachers can target a questioner and provide guidance?
My best advice is: don't listen to any advice here, unless you know the person it is coming from. Rather always seek face to face and ear to mouth to ear advice, which you won't get on such a forum as this.
I've gotten some great advice here from people I don't know at all. I'm also living in a place without, until recently, too many flute players to seek advice from locally.
The best example of help provided not by any player I'd consider an expert that I received here relates to my lips and my embouchure. I had an unfortunate run in with a fire hydrant cap when I was 6 or 7 which led to stiches and a slightly disfigured upper lip which hinders the "normal" embouchure formation espoused by books and every expert I've spoken to or who has posted to this board. However, there is a small community of us on this board with similar issues, and they helped me more than anyone else did with working around this issue and moving forward.
Finally, I'm not sure a clip can provide a ton of information about the player and their ability unless they have the equipment and space to do their playing justice. The microphone on my computer is circa 1996 and came free from Packard Bell with my first computer, my soundcard is ancient, the room my computer in is small, carpeted, has a low ceiling and surrounded by books which deaden sound immensely...my sound is not good at all when I record clips on my computer. Sure you could tell about my rhythm, timing, and skill with ornamentation, but you'd not be hearing what I sound like anywhere else.
