At some point, it makes sense to ask yourself, "Why does it make a
difference whether the reed closes 100% or not? A mouthpiece craftsman
may need to know this in order to design a mouthpiece properly, but do
**I** care all that much? Or is it just an interesting bit of trivia?
Perhaps what counts for *me* is how my music sounds when I put my tongue
on the reed firmly vs. softly, or how my music sounds when I touch the
reed with my tongue before moving my fingers vs. after vs. not-at-alI,
and so forth?"
