Today was my first chance to try out the exercises. I just did roll-out 1, squeaking and roll-in 1. Within 2 minutes I had played a low E I had never played before!! I got to D in various stages of disbelief. It was interesting; at one point ... suddenly the note seems to be sucked out of you, then I go lower.
My squeaking, which I could not do every time, got me wailing around G and B 3 above middle C. More exclamation marks due. I could not do it on the mouthpiece though...
This is F U N !
Thank you so much for the video. I needed it to know how to do the lip turn out. I have to do it in front of the mirror for a while, I think.
Sorry to bother you, had to enthuse. Even my husband was impressed, not by the face mind.Then this additional comment came in the next day:
Just to see what the mouth clamp approach would do, I tried my high notes after finishing the BE exercises. I got my target note for the year immediately! (G two above middle C) It's only March, now what do I aim for?? Oh yes, decent tone so the neighbors don't try to rescue the kitten apparently being tortured in my living room.
