    Hi Mark. I'm a comeback player of 4 mo. after 50 years off. I couldn't even believe that I could play the C scale but I had no chops muscles. I had to really jam that mp into my face to play just up to A and I could only play 5-10 mins. The mp pressure has gone down with time but don't be stupid like me and jam the mp in your face. Better to take it easy. :cool:
