    I think I finally got the hang of keeping my corners tight or set. My question is, should they stay that way throughout the range, or should they tighten up the higher you go, loosen up the lower? If they stay set, it seems the only thing that'll get the higher partials out would be the tongue. (And I'm talking D, E, F, etc. not the high notes above the staff)

    I am thinking they stay more or less "SET" and firm -- and the aperture stays "flexible" --- small, but the lips are free to vibrate IN THE aperture -- and then of course use AIR to increase range and such. --- so maybe the tongue helps in range --- but the better bet is to use AIR (support, fast air, big air, hot air, more air) -- whatever you want to call it ---- AIR!!!!!!!!
