Thread: High Register

  1. High Register

    Hey all!

    I noticed that when I play high, I am "pinching" to get the note. Chops get tired, not too consistent, and not a full tone. I have tried really hard to not "pinch", but it is hard to play past the g above the staff without using "pinching" Any advice?

    Great video Dave! Rich Matteson is one of my personal heroes of jazz. A unique player and very much missed.
