Day two


Before playing

Chops feel 20% better from get go.  Played until 1am last night (13hrs rest).  Warmed up at 2pm.  Was well rested.

Session

Mid range intervals up and down.  Mid G->low C; Low C->low G

Lip slurs, slow up to 3rd partial, faster up to 5th partial.  Slurred and tounged

Chops weren’t ready from just that.  Tried Pictures, Petrouchka, Pines.  Didn’t feel resonant, too stiff, didn’t have the pinpoint accuracy.

Got everything feeling better after 2 hrs of Charlier and scale practice.  Still not 100% though.

After session

I don’t feel that beat up.  I definitely feel more ready than when I started playing today.
