    Above the staff A, or altissimo A?

        You're killing me, Smalls!!! I'll have to try that out tonight. No other keys? Just the spit valve? I'm still trying to remember to use it occasionally to keep the pathway clear. If I can actually associate a note with it, that would be awesome. Well, I would have to wait for the gurgling to stop before the note came out...

          do you practice overtones if you can play them really well on bari youd be suprised how high you can get on the others i forget what fingerings i use but i can get REALLY high higher than altos everythinks its squeks but i finally learned to play the notes in between the squeek so now its just awesome coolest thing you can do with overtones that inspirsed me was playing revielle (sp?) the bugle call its hard but ive gotten it to pretty fast speeds
