    That's exactly what the geese here do, they actually stick their tongues out (can't do it very far, not past their beaks but their tongues are on display) and hiss. It doesn't seem to make 'em very musical. But they got that arch tongues and hiss thing down. ROFL

    I'm gonna go look for that article.

    If you take the horn out and play just a little you will never have range. Play every day and start off with 1 hour per day. Build this up till you can play 4 hours per day. By that time you should have lots of range.
