Sidekick, no apology at all is needed. I'm sorry that you thought that one was needed. None at all. Practice patterns aside, we all have notes that cause us "problems". i just thought that I would ask if anyone else had problems with high F. That's all. I just came back from a gig, where F and a few notes above it were palyed with no problem at all, (as almost per usual) Just wondering the "whys" of our instrument.
