High E Trouble

On my Yamaha 62 Tenor, I'm having trouble nailing that high E (using my left hand between the thumb and index finger). I can get the High D, but I lose 50% of the tone trying for the High E. Is there an alternate fingering for it? Do I need a stiffer reed (I'm using a La Voz medium/hard)? Do I need to be a better player :) Thanks! mk
