      I’m looking for 2 specific videos of Greg’s – can someone help me find them? The first is the “Playing in the red” video and the other is where he discusses having 2 houses or buildings and you’re trying to eventually move from the older, less stable one into the newer, stronger one, relating it to trumpet playing.

      I found this quote of from Greg which spoke to me and I feel it directly applies to me in attempting to play with no pinch in the middle of the lips: “If the notes don’t speak and you are a more advanced player it means you have been relying on tighter lips so therefore greater air pressure to get the note to speak. That is where inefficiency starts.”
      Good stuff.

      I think this is the playing in the red one:

      I think the other might have been Trumpet Chat 7″ or “Is playing trumpet life or death” or something like that.

      Yep, Bill–here it is:

      Start at 20:19 (note: Greg says he doesn’t describe this as an embouchure change but “sensation development”)

      The building bit starts at 21:03 or thereabouts.

      But the WHOLE video is great, so you might want to go back and watch it again like I did.

      Good luck!

      ^^^ This is awesome. Keeps me going on this path when I start to get impatient or frustrated, which is often.
