I just began playing the English Horn after playing oboe for the past 6 years. I have found that most of the notes are in tune, or close enough that I can correct with embouchure.
The main exception to this is the G-Flat right above the staff. This note, even when making extremely drastic adjustments with my embouchure, remains no less than 30 cents flat.
This may be because it is a cheap, school owned instrument or because of a not-so-great bocal (but I can't replace either).
Is there an alternate fingering or other way to compensate for this very flat G-Flat?
