Re: resonance approach

I do agree with Tom. One of the most sensible thing said on TTF is " all tips on embouchure and breathing can be followed to the letter and just make things worse". Maybe a little drastic, but not much. Also, do good players (and teachers) know exactly what they are doing when they are playing beaut...

Re: Contrabass- mouthpiece?

I did play a Bruno Tilz KB3, for me the outstanding piece for contra, but Marcinkiewicz 106 or 107 are also good.
I do not play the contra anymore though, the horn wasn´t mine, it belonged to the orchestra.

Re: Tongue level, vowel sounds, thoughts

Well, I was not clear in my saying. Of course you can feel you tongue level when you think about your tongue as being a muscle. But to place your tongue in the "right" place for to play a high G is another thing. Like in whistling you pre-hear the tone (hopfully with a good sound) in your innerear a...

I don´t think anybody can feel the toungue level. You can check that easily. When you whistle you control the tones with the toungue level right? It works fine. But if you sing a tone, and befor you wistle the tone you try to find the right tongue level for the tone, the without changing the tongue ...

Re: Valve Trombone Acceptance

Yes that is correct. Lots of European music was written with the valve trombone in mind. The trombone was hold back in favor of the valved bone. It is less the 200 years ago, thanks to Anton Hansen, that the trombone started to come back in Sweden.

Re: trouble with the contrabass register

since you can play the double pedal Bb on second position I am sure you will get the tones D Db C and B, (you do have a BB on first position right?) there is a lot of tubing used when playing pedal D, so there is much resistense. Maybe you blow to fast? Maybe you push the air to much? It usually tak...

It all depends on what your teacher say. If he want you to use leagto tongue, do it. It is good to be able to use legato tongue and it is also good to be ableto use against the grain legato. If you are good at it it does sound the same.

The oft talked about Bartok gliss is also a red-herring, so don't get wound up about that either. ....
