    It sounds like you have some breathing issues. Could also be some other things. Have you a teacher?

    Thankyou to everyone -
    Klaus O is closest in his description of what i was experiencing.

    I also think energy level is a factor. As noted, i had just returned from a two day 10 hour per day field trip in the car.

    The subsequent rehearsal went fine , but i had time to refocus my energy.
    I find that i sometimes am quick to look to the equipment or other excuse when playing below par - when the real issue is the state of mind.

    The mouthpiece discussion was intersesting, even if covered by other threads.

    Thanks again.
