    Yes, that is not needed.

    Right, which is why I suggested it, so the OP would be less prone to using pressure.

    I kid not, although I am a kid. I didn't mean to offend you, so I am sorry. You may regard your opinion as 'right' or 'better' than mine, but is that not going against the fundamentals which form the liberation and equality in modern society?

    We should let the OP decide who he listens to.

    Not always. Only faster vibrations are required. Just think about it from a scientific perspective, or more specifically the wave model. Higher air speed --> shorter wavelengths and higher frequency --> higher pitch. Nothing more is needed, apart from getting your head around the concept and adjusting your mindset while playing.

    That's how it worked for me anyway.

    I think it's good down to here. But at this point, changing breathing techniques, air flow is not the problem. The problem is the OP needs to rest and take it easy. He has been using muscle in the band camp experience beyond the ability of lip muscle to cope with the strain. A little backing off and rest will be the best plan to returning to a baseline.

    Thank you DaTrump. I also PM'd our buddy Al regarding equations that apply to this situation. Perhaps between the two of us, we will be able to teach Al some basic concepts in physics and math. That's the kind of service you get from the members of TM OP, education, education, education [and some ridicule].

    What is needed, Al as it relates only to your commentary is a basic understanding in physics.
