Mu issue is with the fingers--going from a fairly open fingering
to a fairly closed one--a la clarion C to (is it altissimo?) c
sharp? My embouchure can a bend a pitch pretty far in either
direction and it is pretty controlled--just can't seem to make
a really good gliss say from the throat B flat to the (clarion?)
B natural? How would one make the fingers not make a bump?
