Your still pushing the air to fast.  Softer brother...slow down and draw the quack out.  Feel the reed vibrating.  Drop the adams apple and use deep hot air (like your trying to talk like Barry White).  If you were to be using a word like hut...don't think your doing the quarterback hut hut hut thing.  It's more of a hhhhhhhuuuuuuuuttttttttttt almost like fogging a window air.

Do not get discouraged!!!!!  Remember a duck call is a wind operated musical instrument.  One doesn't learn to play a sax in a day.

Jcluesman....your still using forward pressure and blowing to much from your upper body and mouth. 
Let's talk throat burst..
.without a call....close your mouth...now pop your throat....hup hup hup....feel that?  That's where you begin the note.  Now open your mouth and without a call pop you throat.  Don't push the air forward...let that throat burst push for you.  Feel the heat of the air and slowly raise the rear of your tongue to cut the note.  Now try with the call.  Hhuuusssssshhhhh.  Try to blow a soft duck. 

David...not to bad boss!  Sounds like good full hot air.  Do that again but make it a quite soft duck.  If your air is right it will sound the same just quiter.  That tells you if the air is right.  Soft burst....soft good sounding quack.

It sounds the same. ;D I guess that means my air is right. Now what? I think I can call pretty good but having confirmation that I can at least do a quack right is good. Thanks!

Haven`t posted in a few days.....just to allow time to work o  it.  jcluesman...last soundfile you were simply opening you throat and letting air into the call with no structure hence the sound.  Open that throat boss....throat burst....allow the air to vibrate the reed....push air forward and structure the quack then cut the note.  Learning once you have the right air to structure it.....its the secret right there.

I`ll attempt to post just a simple quack this afternoon

Better...now where is the tip of your tongue?  Should ALWAYS be at the gum line of your bottom teeth.  Never use the tip of your tongue.

Awesome thread Stump.  Just for curiosity sake... what is the reason for this?  Other than spitting into the call?  I tend to be an unorthodox caller in that i cut with the tip of my tongue a lot and I also have my teeth closed together.  It gives me more control.  Been working on the second half to get a bigger range of sound; its just something I started many years ago and I guess bad habits stick.
