Buzzing on "Bad Days"
I have noticed that "mouthpiece buzzing" as my first execise of the day is a great indicator of how the rest of the day is going to go.
After 5 days of very strong salsa playing I notice that I could hardly buzz. Its as if my aperture is just too wide. Terrible playing follows shortly after the bad buzzing.
Is there anything you could suggest to get the correct buzzing "back on track"? Is their anything you can suggest to get the aperture back to its 'Normal" state.

When this happens to me, I just don't play the trumpet until the buzz on the mp is good. Why bother practicing/playing badly? It usually doesn't take more than a few minutes to fix the buzz. Relax. Go slow.
Ghost tones: pppppppppppppp<ppp>pppppppppppppppp after the gig. Long tones starting with a tiny whisper "caught" or "trapped" in the bell. These can be used after the gig or during the day to help put the lips back together.
