    hi Johnny, hope you’re having a good summer. despite my best efforts at tightening up my embouchure, my upper palm key notes are all flat; hi D# thru F#… its me not the sax, my yts62/otto link sounds great with notes up to a or b, then I’m really flat above that. any tips? much appreciated! 🙂

    I’m trying to play like stuart m on Sade’s ‘is it a crime’; great solo if i can get those upper notes sounding on pitch

    i have sen you do this figuring, for your higher octave, the g and a finger pressing down, leaving off the b finger and maybe the high d side key what is this
