Thanks, Bob, and thanks for all your posts! You've been a great teacher here on the board, to me at least.

(that goes for Tony as well, cheers!)

Yeah, the "Joe" thing I learned about that is, where the reed and the mouthpiece meet, is how much mouthpiece you take in--right up to that point. It's a small thing perhaps but it's changed my playing for the better.

Joe supposedly had his students play scales on the mouthpiece, just by altering one's mouth cavity inside; hence the flexibility.

He also (and this might be applicable to the OP here) used upper partials as an indicator of airflow--like, finger the first-space one-thumb F, only play the C a twelfth above, then let the airstream "find" the F. At that point, that's the correct air for your instrument/mouthpiece/reed setup; this for sure discourages overblowing (which some people, i.e. me, used to get a 'good' sound, rather than let the instrument/mouthpiece/reed/oral cavity, plus a 'supported' airstream, do it).
