I picked up the sax after 25 years of. Playing tenor. Been at it nor for about a month. One thing I have been practicing is playing a low note, say c, then changing my embouchure to play the first overtone, and then the second overtone. I can do this for low b, c, and d, but when I try e, I cannot get the second overtone. Is this something that will just come after a while? Or is there something I need to specifically work on? It did not take long to get the b, c, and d. Seems like I should have the e by now, but it does not seem like the note is even trying to come out. As I am writing this, it occurred to me that I don't know if I have tried f. I am at work (of course) so can't try it right now. So I don't know if there is just something about e that makes it difficult; or if I am just stuck. I feel it is probably the latter. Thanks. Hey to ScholckRod, if you read this.
