    Just out of sincere interest, VB, how long did it take you to recover after that particular event?

    Which one? Minor pain a couple of times playing Maynard charts or four hour dance gigs, which took a day or so to recover. Two major bruises, one involving practicing the Brandenburg twice back to back, and once when hit by a Frisbee. The Frisbee incident kept me from playing for about three days, sore for a week. My treatment involved hot and cold packs, aspirin, soft playing and beer.

    Word on the street is that DMSO works wonder on bruises.

    I think there is some confusion with the term fatigue. By "good fatigue" earlier, I meant "tiredness" as opposed to "exhaustion." As I see it, as a psuedoscientist, we have a sort of continuum: Fresh---Tired---Fatigued---Exhausted. I believe it is OK to enter the fatigued phase provided we are careful to compensate with good habits like breathing and posture. The tongue we can take much farther into the fatigued stage that the rest of the chops.
