OVERTONES – DO THIS AND GET THE BEST SOUND

OVERTONES – DO THIS AND GET THE BEST SOUND
Practice overtones and get a much richer sound and better tone control
Overtones make your sound richer. You want to have a rich sound with a lot of overtones displayed present.
With a lot of overtones present in your sound your sound gets more projection, it becomes more powerful and you get a better control of your sound.
Overtones also have a direct influence on your ability to play falsetto register on the saxophone.
All this leads to better control of the horn. Great sound also influences the ease of your technique on the saxophone.
All saxophone players should practice overtones and get the advantages of this.
