short overpressure in the call to make the B in the
When you have practiced this for a while, you can try
to make a vibrato during your exhalation for a more
faithful sound. The volume is adjusted by how hard
you blow into the call as well as with your left hand in
front of the sound chamber. Practice and listen how
hard it is possible for you to blow before the sound
breaks, and adjust thereafter!
