Hi everyone. I am new to the site, was turned onto it by Ivan Hunter (thanks Ivan!). I have never been an active participant in a blog (or anything similar online), but I am so excited about this site that I am going to try!
Anyway, I am a returning player who took 15 years off (ugh) for a host of insufficient reasons. I am so excited to be back playing again! Given work, family, commuting etc I only have an average of 1 hour a day to be actually playing my horn. That said, I work an office job and commute 4 hours a day by train so I have tons of time to be listening and studying music (and studying to make sure my practice time is focused and productive). One thing I am going to try in order to get my chops back where they used to be is this PETE by Warburton.
I figured I will let you know how it goes! I have been doing it for 4 days so far, and will check back with everyone in a month and let you know what progress I see. I can tell after just 4 days that my chops are getting stronger, but am excited to see how it translates to pitch, range and endurance.
