It's a joke. Responding to the joke in 3#.SearjeantSax said:doug lange what are you talking about?!?!?!?
You change the way you blow, basically. You'll want to squeeze the air flow a bit by raising your tongue slightly towards the roof of your mouth as you blow.SBramblett said:how do you produce altissimo.
Your advice in 3# is a joke, isn't it? If not, it seems like a pretty bizarre and unreliable way to produce true altissimo notes as opposed to some random squeaking. I suppose "random squeaking" might be fun in some contexts but I wouldn't rely on it much for normal playing. Or am I missing something here?Demolisher_2000 said:Joke!?!
Everything is relative, I suppose. If altissimo is controlled squeaking, then so are all the notes on the instrument!SBramblett said:how do you produce altissimo. i have been told it is just controlled squeaking, but im not sure.
