    Nevermind....

    But may I suggest making the sharp / flat notes like this:

    A#/Bb

    C#/Db

    etc

    I feel that will help.

    It's when your bottom lip is halfway to the leadpipe (wrapped around the OUTSIDE of the cup) and your top lip is on the bottom inside edge of the rim. It AIN'T musical but the F-horn guy and I have fun "competing".

    I just copied and printed the chart. I'll let you know in a few years if it is correct in the DHC zone.

    No no, you can just do it with your lips on the rim, that's at least how I do it, I can go to about double pedal E with that, though my lips are very open at that.

    Most charts do it that way, but I do not concur and the reason I say this is that there is only ONE note or ONE BLACK KEY on the piano for each flat or sharp viz I consider a chromatic run as Ab A Bb B C C# D Eb E F F# G. It's a tonal rise sequence, no more, no less. The reason the charts do it is to match key signatures viz, there could be as many as 7 flats or 7 sharps to denote a musical key. The question, for example is how do you play a Cb? Yes, its played as a natural B. Likewise an Fb is played as a natural E. It can be done, I suppose, but it bugs me none the less.
