Hey I forgot to add about this. My neighbor (the one that recommended hot wax on lips) he was VERY convincing unfortunately and I was curious to try it.. but i was too chicken and not yet out of my mind to put HOT WAX on my lips. BUT i still wanted to do it because I'm friggin curious so I thought of an Alternative. I semi-burned my lips on hot soup (not to the point were smiling or talking hurted like hell or even skin peeling, just like a minor burn) My question is.. if a player somehow burns his lips, would that greatly effect his playing? Will it scar anything? I heard scarring is bad from a band camp instructor at my school.
