I've had some scar tissue on my top lip since i was little and recently i have found that it has really been hurting my playing. The past two weeks I've been pretty busy playing with jazz ensembles and my school's varsity band, and I've been on the horn more than i normally am most of the time and i've found it harder to find time to take some time off the horn. There has always been a small amount of discomfort while playing but I've never really made it become a negative factor in my sound. I would like to know if there was anyone here who has a similar problem and what you do to work around it. I really don't want to increase the size of my mouthpiece because i already play on pieces that are relatively large(1 1/2C-3C) so if there is anything else anyone could recommend that would be fantastic!
