Diagram: Section Playing

Here is one of my views about section and ensemble playing. Sometimes simple diagrams can say a lot.

Thanks for the diagram, Norman. I'm heading to an Orlando Opera to play a Mozart opera. Although the section sounds "in tune", it hardly feels of a united resonance. Tonight I try wires. BTW, I'm now realizing a lot of things that you taught me in our lessons. Now that I feel I have time, they are sinking in and growing a bit. (Don't worry, I water and nurture as needed.) :) One thing in particular is the exercise with the Bona and close listening. It's become such a part of how I do things, it's now transferring into all the things that I play. Thanks!
