    Yeah, I see the difference. This implies that you are dumber than a lab rat.

    Now that serious things seem all said, I can add my own stupidity: I would like to get some "Dizzy-ness" to play the high notes ... ;-) :-) :D

    keep the aperture small, the corners of your mouth tight --- choke up on the mouthpiece -- and give er some AIR ---- hold that high note (whatever it is) as long as you can ----- use some pressure if it helps!!! --- and you will get dizzy!!! I can almost guarantee that. Other than that --- go back to softly working your way up to high notes, consistent air, great breath support --- and 1,000s of hours of practice ---and WAH LAH --- one day you open up the case (after a day of rest) and you hit the double high C -------------------------and then you realize -- it is just another note!!!! and the lure of hitting it, is then gone ---- and in your depression, you hyperventilate, and become dizzy ------------either way, you will get dizzy!!! ROFL ROFL ROFL

    Thanks KT, that pretty much confirms my suspicion.
