    Great story RJ...

    I play the Monette B4S mouthpieces so I'm encouraged by this news. I seem to have come into a break at "D" above high "C" and can't seem to go above that. I will now challenge my mind to know that I can and keep doing the physical work to get there.

    Thanks for the inspiration!

    The mind is very powerful if you believe it and desire to use it. I mentioned this a short time ago about someone what was bothered by the heat and humidity so much that it affected his playing. I told him to remember and feel the time when he was very cold.

    Now, RJ, et al, if you really want that sound that you desire the most, then you have to think of that sound when you are playing and believe that you are going to make it even better. Don't give up but keep at it even if it means some time for meditation before you practice so as to get yourself in the right mode.

    Good luck,
