I feel completely stupid for even asking this. Here I am, I've played clarinet for 8 years and I can't even remember scales...

Anyways, I've been out of playing for a year and I have an audition on friday at the college I am transfering to. I figured I'd be playing all scales thus just be able to play them all straight through. It's what I do best. However, I've now been notified that they will just say a few scales to play....meaning I have to remember the names and whatnot. Now, since I've been out of practice, my mind is just gone and I cannot remember any of this.

So...if someone could please check over this and fill in the blanks, make sure everything is right, etc etc...I would appreciate it SO much. I am leaving for my audition tomorrow (it's quite a few hours away and my brother lives down there so I am going to stay with him)...and I'd like to get all of my practicing in tonight...

So, here is what I have...

Concert Bb - All naturals (Clarinet pitch C)
Concert Eb - 1 flat (Clarinet pitch F?)
Concert Ab - 2 flats (Clarinet pitch Bb?)
Concert Db - 3 flats (Clarinet pitch Eb?)
Concert Gb - 4 flats (Clarinet pitch Ab?)
Concert ?? - 5 flats (Clarinet pitch Db?)
Concert ?? - 6 flats (Clarinet pitch Gb?)
Concert F - 1 Sharp (Clarinet pitch G)
Concert C - 2 Sharps (Clarinet pitch F#)
Concert G - 3 Sharps (Clarinet pitch A?)
Concert D - 4 Sharps (Clarinet pitch E?)
Concert E - 5 Sharps (Clarinet pitch B?)

Again, I feel so stupid for having such a blank mind on this...but if someone will help me out...I'll love you forever and ever.

Thanks!

the concert pitch name of a scale is one full step (two half steps) below the starting note in Bb.
so, if you play a G scale on clarinet, for instance, it's a concert F scale.
