Great to hear you’re doing well, Steve. I think whatever works for us that helps us visualize what we need to play more efficiently, relaxed, etc. is fine.

For me, I’ve been having success taking a big breath and letting the air escape the aperture with the tension in the corners surrounding the aperture and thinking Ooohhh on High C and doing harmonic slurs up from there.

It’s funny how our perspective changes, right? My “Bad” days, which are fewer and farther between BTW, are much better than the best days I never imagined a few years ago.

I still get frustrated at times and want to improve, but I have a lot to be grateful for.
