Frank Minear Method - Advanced Daily Warm Up and Range Routine
This has been out of print for some time and occassionally folks ask me about it, so here it is if you are so inclined:
This is the first thing I do everyday. Main thing is do it at a moderate volume, medium, do not blast. Then I usually move on to playing tunes, 6-7 tunes, can be jazz or lead charts at comfortable medium volume, do a set of lip slurs and call it good till a gig or rehearsal later that night or just chill till tomorrow. If my playing that day or night is real heavy, I may just stop after the Minear routine and save it for the gig.
