I am a student Alto Saxophone player who plays first chair in my Middle School. Since summer came I barely picked the thing up for a month and when I tried it today I could only get out high notes. I'm really kicking myself for not playing it lately but I was wondering what the problem is. Like whenever I try say a Middle C it comes out higher and I struggle to get it lower. My guess is that my mouth is too weak from not playing and I wanted a confirmation on that. I haven't played in a month and I am using Rico's #3 Reeds. I'm just confused because I thought if I didn't play for a month HIGHnotes wouldn't come out not LOWnotes. So the point is I just want a confirmation that my guess is correct and sorry for putting the Saxophone down. It's really embarrassing to admit and I really love the Saxophone. Please confirm my theory or tell me whats wrong about it thanks!
