Hi all, I've just become aware of a problem in my playing, which I'd not really noticed before. I've been working on some bebop transcriptions, and when slurring down across the octave break as in, say, E to A, the A hardly ever sounds cleanly. There seems to be a microsecond of a harmonic before the lower octave note sounds. Horn is Yam 62, changing mouthpiece makes no difference. I regard myself as a good intermediate player. The harmonic on the A seems to be a G or G#. The only thing which seems to help is really backing off the airstream on the drop. I'm guessing it's a player problem, rather than a horn problem. Anyone else have the same issue, and if so, how did you cure it?
