There are several posts in this forum, also in the "old edition", but I'd like to take in mind some player tricks in order to obtain a correct kan (second octave). I'm able to play almost all the notes (some times there is a noticeable white noise and I'm trying to control it) but I've some problems with the last note of kan - ha, if I'm not wrong - namely the third D of a 1.8 shakuhachi. What is the role of the thumb (5th hole) in playing kan. Half covering the 5th hole with the thumb make me able to play easily, smooth and "rounded" notes for ro and tsu ... Thanks for replay.
