    I've perused this entire thread and I still can't understand how any who have written can play notes in the altissimo or even those lower if they don't use the muscles of the fingers, hands, arms, shoulder, chest, upper back in addition to those of total pulmonary system, face, lips and throat.

    I believe VB is referring to how that finger places on the valve casing and how that placement leads to positioning of the horn that impacts on the airflow dynamics at the mouthpiece.

    uhm, if you notice on some players -- they also tilt the horn sideways --- which might not make the airflow any greater through the horn, but perhaps it takes pressure off the lips, as most people have longer arms, by canting the arm ever so slightly to the left ---- they probably are redirecting pressure away from their lips!!! -- just an observation of mine!!!!

    and this guy cants his horn to the right --- really look at him --- but I guess it worked(works) for him, and who can argue with that????

    of course, we know a Dr. that wears a blue suit on TM, and I should start a thread -- but we know this DOC here wears some pretty interesting threads to his gigs (who is the better dresser??)) ROFL ROFL ROFL
