Just recently started playing again after many years and glad I did. the biggest frustration to get over was the fact that I still had my playing knowledge (and to a point ability) but endurance etc was pitiful - it is getting better!!!! But, while researching the best ways of improving endurance and range etc - The internet (wasn't around when I learnt to play) has been fantastic as I have learnt loads of theory about playing which I didn't realise. Right reason for the post!!!! Can anyone direct me to a source on breath control and how to create the right pressure to go up the scales. I can play quite happily up to a high C but I think undue pressure on my chops at the higher end = low endurance and the limit on my range. My current playing requires a high E which I have hit but from straining to and effectively wipes out the rest of my practice so I know I need to change what I do. I may well go down the route to find a local teacher in the near future but any info you Guys can enlighten me with would be most welcome.
