    I just factored that in. Thanks.

    When I get a chance I'll check to see if my valves are different for 1-2 and 2-3. That would be interesting.

    Thanks, John! That helps clear it up. It is at the very least "dangerous" writing, IMHO, because of the diversity of range and color. The live version still sounds worse, but I think a cold...

    For me, it's my 1st finger, but I can usually manage it fine.

    I knew one person who glued a thin layer of cork to the top of each finger button. Might help!

    Well, that's another case of "never assume" I guess. I'd love to see the score at that point and try to figure out why it grates on me so much! Thanks for clarifying!

    True, and if that technique feels good to you, it works fine. However, you should not use that technique because your water keys get clogged. Once the water keys don't let water out, it is a sign the...

    You don't state whether you get water from the main slide when you remove it and dump it, but I'll assume you do.
