Ok, before you say I should search the forum I'm only looking for one thing. Since I probably won't find Lenny Pickett's e-mail address any time soon I'm just wondering one thing.

Does anybody have a "favorite" fingering you use to vent the extreme high register (and by that I mean where Lenny Pickett lives.) Don't worry, I already know how to do it, but in the interest of being a little more precise for a classically oriented piece I'm just poking around for a fingering that seems to always help you vent the upper register so you can pick your notes as you like without much hassle.

To answer other questions:

1. Yes, I use lip pressure to help voice.
2. I can play up to a "triple G" (which would be written above the treble clef staff with 11 ledger lines.
3. I promise I'm grown and I already know what I'm doing :)

Thanks!

Thanks!

your question doesnt really make sense.

i would recommend that you look in the altissimo section for suggestions on fingerings or do a web search

Alto or tenor?

Which notes?

Don't use lip pressure, especially if it's classical. You want the upper notes to have a similar timbre to the 'normal' range.
