I have learned to become more relaxed over the past 6 months, reducing pressure and becoming a better player all around. Recently I have been studying Bod Odneals Casual Double High C and playing the method he espouses there to build high register. I won't give the method away but it seems counterintuitive and absolutely in my opinion will help one attain higher notes if practiced thoroughly (OK a newbie opinion at that-take it for what it is worth)
Anyway, as I am playing I am getting dizzy. Bob said I am probably tensing up somewhere and we can actually cut off blood to the brain as we do this. This seems to make sense.
Any ideas on reducing tension or finding the place of tension, etc. Any general or specific methods that have worked for you in the past?
