So, yesterday was my first public performance with my drum and bugle corps in over ten years. i spent the last six months practicing, rebuilding my embouchure, working on my range, and i pulled it off. i have a question though, should i be "this" tired after a day of playing? here's how it went: we did an hour rehearsal in the morning and then four half hour performances with a half hour break in between throughout the day. at the end of the day i fell asleep on the car ride (girlfriend was driving) from the fair to my parents house for my dad's birthday, i felt like a zombie the entire time i was there and my lips were chapped. Then to top it off my family wanted a "sample" of what i played, and noone would let me off the hook! i had to do a run through of my material! when i finally got home i fell asleep for ten hours!! anyone else get this worn out after a day, or do i need to work on my endurance? by the way, i do feel like a million bucks right now, yesterday was great!!
