27th October 2016 - Patience
Moving through the second octave.
Moving from the low to the high register.
Looking up Arpeggios on google.
They say it's easier for a camel to go through the eye of an needle than a rich man go to heaven.
They say that your embouchure should be the size of a grain of rice on the side.
I'm picturing that camel. No bigger than a grain of rice. I'm playing a second register G and puffing the little guy through my new Olwell. But he knows the parable (who told him?) and he won't always go. He gets stuck and makes a low G honk in annoyance.
Patience. I'll win him over with kindness and time.
