I have started playing after a 27 year break. Played a year or two after high school in a Polka Wedding band and then took a break until a few months ago when a teacher friend invited me to start playing in his bar band. Anyway, I am having a ball but am no where near the caliber I was back then. Anyway, the other night we had a gig and I noticed that after a few songs my lips seemed to lose thier ability to vibrate. It was actually after one song (Bitch - Rolling Stones) that I noticed this. I guess the best way to describe it is they felt stiff. I was able to get a sound however, my range and my accuracy were severely hindered. This seemed to get better as the night went on. I will say that my stamina is not there. Due to the constraints of life I do not get to practice as much as I would like/need to. Gigs consist of some background stuff and a few solos. If I had to be featured in a whole song I would probably be shot after that. Any ideas/thoughts/opinions are welcomed. Thanks in advance.
