I know I've only been back on the horn for 2 weeks now but there's something that's bugging me..
If I play a song I'll struggle to hit anything over a top space E. If I do manage to hit it, it sounds rather messy and often I'll split the note. On the other hand, if I play a solid E, and work my way up chromatically I can now hit a B quite comfortably and it sounds wholesome (much to my delight).
I know the latter example gives me more time to set my embouchure and think more about how I'm playing rather than what I'm playing, but is there a specific exercise that I can do to work on getting it right in a different context?
another comeback player who probably needs a little more patience..
edit: I should also say that the more tonging that is involved, the harder it seems to be to hit the higher notes.
