A number of things have happened in the last couple of weeks that have lead, i think to a loss of trumpet lips. 1, started playing saxophone!!! 2, two colds in a row with the dreaded cold sores. Felt better 3 days ago and for the first time in 4 weeks no sore lips so picked up the trumpet and nothing!! No C below the line a weak G and squeaky C. put it down laughed did some horse lips drank a cup of coffee and tried again, oops no better. tried every day since and still no good, whilst i am not unduly worried ( i am worried but a sense of pride stops me admitting it ) and think it will all come back with rest and long tones. Any speed up advice would be appreciated also a bit of moral support would be handy! Is this it or have i been cursed for turning away from the trumpet and picking up the dreaded saxophone, ( how much easier is the sax than the trumpet!! ) Thanks in anticipation.
