    About 20 years ago I included an ad lib solo played only on the mouthpiece. I used my hands similar to the way I use them playing harmonica to produce a variety of tonal qualities. The crowd loved it and I can't say that I disliked doing it. When I was practicing on just the mouthpiece I can't say it helped my range or endurance, but it sure didn't hurt them either.
