Here is a distillation of my breathing and warmup notes with lessons from the SHEW! Breathing types for various needs of playing: 1. intake (small), abdomen moves outward slightly, but relaxed. 2. Intake (Large), abdomen moves inward (horizontally) to create wedge postion. 3. The Shew Breath: - Intake (Large), abdomen holds position (not tense) shoulders lift straight up. - Grip (isometrically) abdomen muscles, mantaining innermost position (lock wedge tension) - Relax and lower shoulders to comfortable playing position. - Blow (as if shooting a blow-gun) He said to do the shew breath 60 times for 20 days and it would become automatic, so I could use it when i need it. As for the warm up, i know pretty much everyone knows this, but flap your lips in a controlled manner, then buzz isometrically with the lips, then play the MPC with clean tone, and a small warm up on the horn. Pretty effective, i tend to add some long tones in the warm up, and then some stamp stuff. The breathing is phenomenal for really screaming.
