Hey there, I just stumbled across your forum and it looks like you guys have some valuable information here. I hope to be able to contribute as well as learn some new things. I do have a question, which I have a feeling I know what some of you guys will recommend as well. I studied about 12-13 years classical and then took a 10 year break. I used to do the old 2 hour a day practice deal. I'm pretty much going to be goofing off now, no lessons, probably no classical, just fun stuff. ( maybe a few classical songs that I like) Now, here is the question. Do you recommend staying in the lower register for a week or so before jumping over, say a middle G, just to get the lips back in order, or start running some scales from the get go? I have never taken a long break when I use to play, so I'm not sure if it damages the muscles jumping back in and pushing that hard.
