    Cat Anderson claims it's the G.

    This IS a 5 minute warm up and it works well for me.

    actually -- Cat Anderson said that was the starting point -- but by no means is that the defining point of this method, nor is it the ending point. The 20 minute G is a method, and the warmup of that method started with the G, and expanded the range from there -- and of course the Cat Anderson method would take 4 hours a day to practice, and it's NOT all long notes either!!! -- just saying. (sure I warm up on a long G for a minute or two - but I also do scales up and down, some slurs, some tonguing and some fast chromatics to get the fingers working also) , 5 minutes is usually sufficient for the music in my community band ---------------NOW my normal practice at home!!! I usually spend 10 to 15 minutes on a warmup, and playing some soft tones -- before I head up above the staff too much!!!

    Just remember Joe44, with KT, you're hearing egg frying. I'm a physician, take my word for it, ATP binds those actin myofiliment heads ANY time of the day.

    GM may be a physician JOE, but he should also know the importance of EGGS - they contain a lot of protein which is useful for building and maintaining muscle!!!

    And sulfur, which smells like farts... KT knows this... he just won't admit to it.

    I find it nice that GM acknowledges how smart KT is. Eggheads are smart people.
