Hi Roger, well done. The main issue I see here is that seems like you are pinching your lips a little as you ascend, causing a small or tight tone. I also hear many breaks in the sound between notes which tells me the air is not flowing continuously and freely, which is probably due to the pinching. Remember, everything we play should feel like a long tone. Keep the air moving and use your tongue placement to aid the range, you must find the balance between the two. Great, great job. Keep going!

I totally agree with you that I am pinching my lips to tight and my tongue placement is not right. I am working on fixing it but it is going to take me a little while to figure it out. I think I made some progress today. I am going to record this song again at a later date. Thanks for your feedback.

Cool stuff. Im poking around on the website checking on range/high note tags. Ive noticed that my range is improving while just practicing buzzing and duets. I never used to be able to play high C but got there 3 times today doing chromatic scales. I like the way you play Roger.
