I don’t know what happens sometimes. It has been about 3-1/2 weeks since I practiced and now I’m struggling again. Technique suffers the most and the fastest. Embouchure is okay, but I still feel weakness. However, this didn’t keep me from recording and posting on Youtube.
The video above is a demo of a mouthpiece I bought a few weeks ago; the Vandoren Jumbo Java. I’m not sure I like it. It sounds okay I guess, but it feels so rough on the embouchure. It actually hurts somehow. It’s hard to explain. In the end I do like it and could use it in a pinch if I had to.
