    Again, I agree as the mucus production is possible with dairy. I find therefore that cutting the dairy with Kahlua is a preventative measure that makes for a nice White Russian; and is a compromise I can live with. Daah!

    And THIS is why we practice: so most of the essential things needed to play are habits and you don't have to think about what you are fighting on stage..............

    AND if you let this thinking get in the way of performance, and practice has not cured this... well... we have drugs for that... assuming counseling fails.

    So I always hear on this site by the biggies that if your breathing correctly and if your not using too much pressure it takes little effort to play the trumpet. If this is the case you should be able to eat a good meal and your energy will go towards digesting your food in that you don’t need as much energy since your playing correctly ?? So which is it ? :dontknow: Just kidding here, I don’t like to eat before I play either…..

    Actually, I like to play with money in my wallet because I know that I can eat afterwards....... Does anyone NOT feel like this?

    I am a fan of the old adage: "Eat like a king for breakfast, a prince for lunch, and a pauper for dinner". Granola with fruit and yogurt and some green tea for breakfast, lads, that will do it. And, invest in a water-pik and use it faitfully before practicing. That will lengthen the life of your horn.

    I feel exactly the same way, but head AFTERWARDS to the bar with our sax player were we choose rather liquid refreshment (nudge, nudge, a nod is as good as a wink to a blind bat).

    Actually, we really only have to pay for alcohol as most places we play pay for our meals. Is this not true for others out there.

    so do you play on a full stomach -- or do you play for a full stomach???? you always confuse us with your posts!!!!!! ROFL ROFL ROFL

    you drink afterwards -- but it is ambiguous as to when you eat!! ROFL ROFL ROFL
