By higher notes I'm talking about everything above the staff. As I've mentioned in another thread, my band is playing First Suite in #-flat major for Military Band, Chaconne. I'm playing 1st Cornet. This is really the first piece of music where I'm required to pop up two high C's from a G. I can get to the G just fine, and I can get up the the C just fine, but I can't get back down. The next three measures consist of me missing every note and the director giving me a strange look, like he wants to strangle me in my sleep. I really have no clue why I can't get back down from the C, even though I can play up to it just fine. I can even pop it out on-demand, but don't ask me to start a scale from it. Any clue what's going on?
