 Difficulties with "middle" C# (C#5)
Author: Obreizh

Hi all,

I am happy to find a BB which seem to be active... and with oboe players :)
We all dream to have real support when we have specific questions.

I am an "old" oboist... and with some years of practice, not a pro, but an "correct" amateur :)

The issue that I have since a few days... is that my middle C# (C#5), is "difficult" to play... a little "dark", not very loud, and difficult to have a great attack on the note... (specially if first note to play).

C#5 fingering I use is the "normal" one :) :
½23 456 C#
(½ refers to left index finger with semi hole open)

I don't see anything that is not correct... and don't find what tuning/screw that I can move a bit to improve that.

Do you have any idea of what can happen... of what can I try to solve that ?

Thanks a lot !
