    Thank you. I appreciate you sharing this as I found it very helpful.
    Looks like you have some nice horns - you must play a lot professionally.
    Again, thank you.

    Ju Ju - that stuff is off the hook! (Went to your website)

    Nice sound, cool ideas - you clearly know what you are talking about when it comes to the horn.

    I do not consider a warm up to be significant or necessary except perhaps to feed a psychological dependency. The muscles in out face are not the same type as in our arms and legs. They do not need stretching or warm ups to work properly. The fine motor skills are habits developed over years of playing.
    I don't agree. Anotomically you are very correct about the make up of facial muscles and the lack of need to warm them. Playing is a syncronicity. Muscles involved in breathing and co ordinating the mental process to the physical response takes some amount of time. i don't know any player who gets their horn out of the case and launches into a high pressure gig.

    Hey Nestbeast.

    Not sure if you were replying to me but if so glad my little rant helped. Yes the horns are great but don't get caught up in the horn thing. it is 98% you. Play long notes, listen to all kinds of players and try and always produce a sound you like. The rest is work & dedication.

    I used to take a day or three off after a big match. After that I'd feel funny not practicing and get right back on it.
