Hello folks. After 30 years without music I too felt something was missing but never lived anywhere I could find a band to play in. In year 2000 a band was started in my community so I jumped in and am thoroughly enjoying it. Problem is I have been relearning on my own, bad mistake I know, and have now burst or split a vein in my upper lip. My question is what now? Do I need to stop playing for a while to correct it? So far it is only a small blood pocket inside the lip but is sensitive to pressure.
I searched about 40 pages here for another thread on this but gave up for lack of time. Any help appreciated. Kevin
