On an unrelated item, be sure to try a couple different reeds on your new saxophone.
If you remember from my earlier letters, or do a search for reeds, you will find the major difference I found going down to a 1 1/2 or 2 from the 3 that was originally sent.

I hope some of this makes sense, and that you realize it comes from my heart. It is not a criticism of you at all, simply my attempt to hopefully share some of the insight that I have been able to honestly look at as a result of my years in prison, my six years of therapy, and a willingness to share. Understand that I can not come up with specific actions that I expect you to follow word for word; you need to run it through your own compiler.
