 Re: Bend/Smear

I bend by lowering my larynx and relaxing my emboucher. Tiping the bell up helps, I think that changes the emboucher relative to the mouthpiece.

The smears I do are done by 'half-holing' - I slide my fingers off the holes gradudally - getting 1/4 tones as I go. When sped up it sounds like a smear.
