I forgot to mention a great trick to add resonance on your long B is to add the A-key.

I use it as often as possible.

There is one drawback to the tonal improvement however. It does raise the pitch a touch. So it should be properly voiced to not be sharp.

The Brahms solo I mentioned in my above comments is a great place to use this technique. It matches resonances in the scale from G, A, to B and on, making the timbre more consistent and evenly matched.

This fingering for B (adding the A-key) wasn't introduced to me in my studies. Marcellus never mentioned it, however I owe Steve Barta, another Marcellus student thanks for showing it to me years ago. He learned it from Harold Wright.
