I don't need to watch YouTube, I am on stage playing with these people (doing it right). I have been playing and teaching this way all of my life. There is no reason to defend "a wrong way". On the side I coach professionals that have crashed and burned. I help them get a life. There is no need to play unintelligently and even less reason to talk about it in a thread designed to help in a very practical way. The human body is resilient - for a while anyway. YouTube is not proof of anything.
Maynard is another story. His playing suffered greatly due to many things suboptimal. I know of 5 ruptures. On the other hand, he made great music in SPITE of the issues. If you check his playing out in the 50's, you see a much better situation. Still, you have to be careful about what you think that you see, he was a showmaster and the last half of his career definitely showcased that aspect. His audience thought that it looked cool to rip the trumpet off of your face...........
Whenever I feel blue, I start breathing again.
Of course, variables enter into play with one's physical appendages and one's personal physiology. But - the illustration of fast slow is very simple yes, and therefore easy to understand. Also, I think you might be confusing the terminology of pressure and speed. Pressure equates with speed, and vice versa.
