Well the band practice before last somehow I got my tounge working a bit in this way and it make playing louder and higher a bit easier, but I lost it and couldn't figure out how to do it again so I will have to experiment more with it. *I found a good website that someone posted a link to about the -pivot system- and it had 8 different tongue styles for how to use it. Do you think I should be trying some specific tongue techniques like this or just keep experimenting on my own?* I also found a way to curl in my bottom lip a certian way today to make it just a bit easier in the same way too. What I really hope to do though is get to working a lot on my breathing/breath support though, (and while I'm at it maybe try working up to doing a lot of crunches/stomach excercises.) Hopefully this can help me get improving to where I don't feel as much stress with playing and don't keep resorting to big playing changes.
