    I am inclined to believe this one will impact the most. A good warm up routine as noted above will set you up for a great rehearsal pattern at any time of the day. Yes, I do anxiously await a reply as to how your are progressing prior to the 9 PM hour.

    Usually, I practice / play just after I finish my morning rites in the bathroom and after I'm dressed for the day ... but before I've eaten breakfast. When my wife is sleeping or on her days off, to keep peace I'll use my Yamaha Silent Brass. This is not to say never at other times when the alternate things I could do aren't viable (there aren't that many alternate things now viable in my life). I log only the actual lip time, not my rest periods. Too, when I practice/play my euph, my wife is at work. I don't practice/play on Sunday unless I'm soloing in church. I'm supposing that again I'll be playing with The Cleffers Wednesday evenings beginning in mid-March and through the fall until our host and lead piano player takes off Southward for his winter vacation.

    I wrote on the previous page that, by putting Carmex on my lips before bed, I had a much better lesson than usual, so that's promising.

    Glad to hear the feel is there. I would still be interested to hear if the actual playing quality was impacted by Carmex.
