Unstable + Weak + Stuffy

Goal: more stable intonation, stronger, more free blowing

Plan: Flat + Weak + Stuffy most likely means that you have poor quality cane (especially if you are on Day 3 or later). Another culprit could be unbalanced construction (taking too much off the rails too far back, for example). RIP. Return to the model to begin your next adventure.
