I must be odd -- if I buzz on the mouthpiece only -- I can't really play well, it seems to tighten my lips and not loosen them. However, if I warm up on lets say -- a 2nd line G for like 20 minutes (then rest like 10) --- everything is great (well a little more warmup might happen, like scales and slurs and stuff.
but then again-- that is what helps me --- long tones-- but hey I am 45 so maybe my lips are already loose enough
