No new posts ( except this one) in the Embouchure forum since April 6th 2011..
Nice to think that everyone's chops have been working perfectly for nearly 6 months!
:shock:
:lol:

Mine are fine except yesterday when I ate something with raw onions on top and then discovered that my embouchure wasn't doing what I wanted it to do at the beginning of the show. That's another thing to avoid along with chewing gum, toothpaste and vinegar, either ingested or used (as with toothpaste) just before going on to play. There must be plenty of other foods and/or drinks which other horn players avoid just before a show, surely. Old Cyril would prescribe his usual formula but what do normal people do or avoid doing? :?

Tomatoes and advocados make my lips swell up, as does Gotterdammerung!

Ice cold G&T seems to help no end...
