    oh, I see - my mistake for hasty reading ---- yeah, like most have said --- it takes patience, and lots and lots of air. I view it like this -- you need lots of slow volumes of air, "fat lazy air", but lots of it!!. I know that doesn't' make sense to a lot of people --- but it is MY ananlogy. You also need to keep the aperture the same as most other things, perhaps "opening" it ever so slightly --- but don't need huge changes. I think like this -- your blowing out a 3" diameter candle, but it is only 3 inches a way ---- big air, not so fast. Although people disagree with the "fast air" --- (((those people are whacked anyhow))) -- and the higher notes need you to blow out a candle (perhaps a smaller 7/8" diameter candle -- but the candle is 5 feet away) and you need focused concentrated air for the higher notes --- YET the aperture only has fine tuning movements. EVENTUALLY, you should be able to do the octave leaps (ie. LOW G - below the C below the staff -- to 2nd line G, to G on top of the staff ---and also the 2 octave leaps --- (low G to G on the staff) and some in between more or less by using your air)

    be patient --- it takes time and practice ---

    I am so very sorry. :lol: I type so much in both Dutch and English (and German) in a day, I make quite some mistakes. And I totally hate it when someone starts speaking Dutch to me when I'm typing in English (Ehum, brothers). But I get better at it every day :)
