I understand some pressure is necessary, but I feel that I use a bit too much pressure. I think it contributes to swelling in my lips and I end up not being able to play as long as I could, which is making it harder to get stronger. Are there any methods or suggestions out there on how one learns how to play without pressure? I know the short is, don't use pressure. But how can I still play my gigs and play the way I need to play, while working on using less pressure at the same time? In other words, I can't just stop playing my gigs and spend 2-3 months rebuilding my range and what not while learning to play differently. Any suggestions? Thanks!!
