Don't, however, get it the habit (as I did, back when I was young) of assuming that a good "sucking" seal on the top joint is all that is necessary for a well-sealed oboe. A lot of the careful adjustment that is needed on oboe involves what happens when the 1st finger down on the right hand lifts a number of pads on the top joint. The adjusting screws for two of these pads are tested and adjusted DAILY by some professionals. There is also two pads that go down simultaneously with the second finger of the right hand--exactly the finger you use to play that E that you are finding resistant. One of the best things an oboe teacher can do is to instruct you how to adjust these three most important screws yourself. Unfortunately, nobody did so in my first 40 years of life....
