    My lips usually vibrate just fine, near the end my corners leak a little and the notes get about half a dynamic softer than when I started. It just becomes harder to play in tune. If I'm real tired I'll start feeling my face trying to do the work for me, at that point I usually just take a breath so it doesn't happen.

    Play it in concert as a part of Copland's Symphony No. 3 with some other "war-horses" in the same program. You'll discover the "mentality" involved, and maybe discover the value of serious looping.
