overtone

  1. Tone Producing & Embouchure
    Hi, this week I made a video on an important topic: producing the overtone series on the low Bb. In the video I played the tenor sax, but of course you can produce the overtone series on the other saxophones as well. The overtones are really important to develop voicing techinque, that is...
  2. Tone Producing & Embouchure
