Very true Harp Player and I don’t want it to take the fun out of making music.  :)

I was thinking about my progress with the Coda EDC and the problems David has been having. For me I had to treat the Coda like a totally new instrument after my initial First few days of exposure to it because after I started switching chambers and playing the full chromatic scale there was plenty of changes that I needed to train my brain on. Like the difference between the English pendant ocarina and the 12 hole sweet potato ocarina or the  recorder. If you rely on muscles memory to get you through. It will slow your progress down or even stop it cold. So if you just go ahead and treat it like a totally new instrument at the start. You will make faster progress in the long run I think.  ??? :)

Still working on my recording issues. I hope to have some videos sometime soon. I recommend low expectations. That way they won’t seem so bad.  :-[ :) ;)

A little FYI on breath support. Some notes require more breath support than others. This is true for other woodwind instruments too. Generally lower notes need more breath support than higher notes but that is not always the case. It depends on the instrument also. Some of Coda’s Low notes need more breath support to get them to sound better. Like singing does. Use your lower diaphragm to control and support your air supply for your instrument to get a better tone quality from your instrument. I hope this helps.  :)
