    This is for all of you that have not yet learned the names of the notes.
    Octaves start with C. High C is 2 ledger lines above the staff. The double octave starting with C is an octave higher. Here is a player that can really play these notes - not only in the practice room. Notice the thick lips. he uses the equivalent of a Bach 1 1/4E mouthpiece.

    That's pretty darned impressive.

    I think the thing that throws people (especially younger people) is that technically, the A on top of the staff isn't "high A", even though it *feels* very high to most younger players.

    To avoid this sort of confusion, whenever I need to talk about any note's position, I always refer to it by its position - "C in the staff" "Top space Eb" "D below the staff" etc. It seems to help.

    Awww yeah! I know all about this guy! Dude takes super long solos w. Dave Matthews Band and doesn't even really start whaling until the end then just stays up there. I can't imagine having power and endurance like that, blows my mind....

    Maaaaan.

    That should be illegal or something. Dog abuse, right? Thanks for the share, Rowuk.

    So, A on the staff is "low A?" What is A below the staff? Double low-A? "A in the hole?"

    a on the staff is "a on the staff" or "second space a"

    Those notes were great, but who cares when it follows some great Clifford style bebop lines. Those are what really sound great.

    !THAT! Brek is the muscal message for the first weekend in Advent 2009!

    I was just trying to put this HIT crap in perspective. We do not HIT notes that we own, we play them. This guy can play a bebop line in that octave. He has worked hard to get there. He is VERY relaxed when playing those notes!
