Ive started to do something here as of late and I dont know how to change it...every time i go from like a C to a high G I get a crack in my sound before the G comes out and today I got like a i guess overtone or something but I think it was maybey because i might have been putting too much pressure on the reed and not letting it vibrate. So how do I get rid of the crack and this overtone? the overtone im talking about it like a altissimo g or something of that sort...

I have this problem with my Yamaha 52 Tenor. I sometimes get the feeling that it's somehow leak related. Help anyone else?

Keep practicing. I had same problem, then one day, it suddenly got better. And Tada, I sound great now days in all register.
