    I agree with Al's comments. Once I've played my G on top of the top line of the staff, I feel I've entered "upper register" territory with the A. My lips are in the "high C" mode, as the A is first and second valves and the high C is open, then it's up to high G, then it's a double A.

    (Like I've got to worry what to call a double A as if I could play it!!)

    Oh Great Double C, where are you??????

    I would think like this, C,d,e,f,g,a,b=Very low, then one note higher to C,d,e,f,g,a,b=Low, then one note higher to C(tuning)d,e,f,g,a,b=Middle, then C(high)d,e,f,g,a,b=High, and lastly the Dubba C.

    Confusing? Maybe I'm confused, either way I'm tired!haha

    I give up...

    You guys call it whatever you want.

    As a working professional lead player I'll call it what works for me.

    I'm outta this one!
