I was thinking of the aperture as just the outside red part rather than the full lips. I was using a lip curl on the top lip even in the staff and as I tried to compress the lips to play higher, the chops had a tendency to stop vibrating all together. I definitely had an aha moment and playing breakthrough over the weekend.Ive said it before and Ill say it again, You are a genius, and a generous genius at that. I will keep you posted on the progress.Blessings,BillI just finished your How the Chops Work book and wanted to let you know how much it helped. Your description and pictures of the aperture tunnel caused a change in my way of thinking that instantly made things much easier. By concentrating on making a longer tunnel and backing off the pressure, the notes I had trouble with speak clearly, and it doesnt take nearly the effort Id been using.I have most of your other books, but I found this one to be the best of the bunch.Good job.Thanks,Scott
