Recently, I've started learning how to "ghost" notes, most often in jazz pieces (shown by an "x" instead of the note). The technique I've been taught involves closing off half of the reed so that the note is articulated, but does not sound as accented as the note which follows it. I know that other players have different methods, such as using just a very light tongue, or skipping the note entirely. I've been having some trouble with my method (albeit, with time, I'm sure I'll get it), and I'm just wondering how all of you approach it.

Thanks!
