      Hey Greg,

      I’ve noticed that in most of your videos when you do active harmonic slurs you seem to almost accent the lower note of the slur/play it louder the the top note. Is this something we should be doing? When i try and do that i definitely push a bit more from my diaphragm

      Cheers

      Sam

      Hey Sam, welcome. Consider this, the higher note is slightly softer not the other way around and there is definitely no activity other than one constant flow/support to maintain the sound. Be sure the keep the BCH free, open and resonant while changing SHAPE to change pitch. Cheers buddy, Greg

      So I’ve now got to the end of the moderato stage and spending some time on those final exercises.

      The accenting the bottom note is even more evident in these harmonic exercises (Bottom C) and I’m really struggling with this. I can’t get the C really fat and then go up to the higher C especially if I’m trying to not add tension

      Maybe I need to practice it really slowly? Trying different things at the moment
