beginning headjoint only sounds

Postby mek42 » Tue Feb 21, 2017 8:19 pm

Is it normal for a complete beginner to find it easier to be consistent making a closed headjoint sound than open?

Some people experience that. Most likely its because the closed tube offers more resistance and some beginners find that makes it easier to produce the sound. Just keep at it. You'll get the hang of it...
