Hmmmm...... oo nga noh? you have a point.....i usually use soft reeds lang kc, d ko pa kaya ng hard reed....that's why i'm having hard time squeaking it...:P  even though nagawa ko man cya.......don't know also which is which key to press and what tone will it produce...hehehe  :-D .........i'm  so amaze for those people who can play overtone, its a plus point for them.... and advantage also...... :)

it all started with the F# altissimo for me. It was mostly feel e. The air inside my mouth feels like a ball of air. My technique was sliding my lower lip forward, bale from tip towards the mouthpiece body. Then medyo feel din ang kagat e, medyo light but not too light. Experiment, bro. Hope i helped.
