Yes and no. I play several different horns, and for the most part use alternate fingerings whenever possible (a change in my playing over my early years). Jay mentions in his post your horn specifically, so for this I will have to respect the masters over my own experience. I cannot think of anyone in AZ I would trust to do this to an Alex, but wonder how so many players made it work w/o the proceedure in the past.
