Hey, everyone... it's been a few weeks since I've stopped by, busy with the usual holiday stuff. Quick question... in my community band, we are currently playing "Procession of Nobles - from Mlada by Nicholas Rimsky-Korsakov. Here's a link to the Airforce band playing it on Youtube: http://youtu.be/UEISXVnWb4U How do I control the spit!? This was a perfect month for me to be "promoted" to 2nd part LOL. When I play this, I have so much more saliva than usual, to the point of seeping out the thumb-hole. Normally I wouldn't worry about this too much at the end of a long playing session, but this song does me in! Am I doing something wrong with my embouchure? It's a fun song, and it's going to be pretty impressive for a February concert!
