Hey! I was jut jazzing around on my new (He! He! ) Tranny tenor, and my Runyon Metal Quantum 8*, and I was playing altissimo so easily, it wasn't even funny. I was playing along with pass the peas, and I blocked out half of the sound on my computer so that I could play along with the other half of the band and no solo. I know that for altissimo you can finger the normal note and adjust your airstream, and your embouchure, etc. etc., but I didn't even have to try, I just did it like I was playing normally! I sounded like Lenny Pickett. I sounded almost like I would if you would bite the reed to get higher, but I wasn't! SWEET!!!!!!
