wjtakacs, do you do 20-30 mins of just the breath/leadpipe/sympathetic buzz with the mm-oo-ahhh setting? I’ve tried it and it seems like a long time, but not to physically tiring since it can be super relaxed.

It’s after this step where I guess I get a little confused. After I get a sympathetic buzz, I spend 15-20 minutes playing the Singing C exercises (or stuff from the book when I get bored) with the new mm-aah-oo setting.

Is this what hixsta is describing? This new embouchure? Greg says that this new setting is “a great place to start.” But, do we keep on experimenting with minor adjustments to our regular embouchure? Or is the mm-aa-oo setting our “new building” we’re working on?
