    Kissing never improved my chops, that I know of, but several women implied that my chops improved my kissing!

    A kiss usually involves more of a pucker form from our lips, which would lead to a darker sound and more cushion against the rim, helping endurance.

    Sorry to hear of the loss of your girlfriend (it hurts, I know) but your playing shouldn't be effected that much, unless you spent more time kissing than practicing!

    In that case, get to work! (Keep your eyes out for cute French Horn players though--they know how to kiss!)

    Have fun!

    It might be how you are being affected by the break-up. It can take a pysiological toll which could lead to your changes. Weird stuffs

    absolutely -- I kiss my horn almost 2 hours a night. Putting that nice mpc on my lips and caressing those curves and gently pressing those valves ----- I am in love with my trumpet -- and that does improve my chops!!!!!!!!!!ROFLROFLROFL

    Actually, I had a girlfriend back in college give me a poster that said trumpet players make the best kissers. let's keep the rumor going.

    It works the other way around. Improving your chops improves your kissing. Seriously.
