      Hi guys
      I’m finding I can get my breathing and blowing nice and relaxed and no kicking once the exercise is under way (singing C) but actually starting the C doesn’t speak or kind of gradually appears.im not pinching either. Any tips? Cheers Thom

      Hey Thom, be sure to watch the early videos over and over and over. Eventually the note will speak naturally. Your lip oscillation isn’t yet 100% sympathetic, it is taking time to respond to the change in air pressure, that’s OK, stick with it. I suggest lots of visualise (or finger), tissue, mouthpiece (no buzz) then add leadpipe practise and simply keep doing the correct PROCESS, don’t manipulate it. Cheers, Greg

      I think, having re watched an earlier m2m video on mpc placement and having sat with my visualizer and lead pipe (using ny nat one, hope thats ok) , that my mpc placement was a tiny bit too high to fully allow everything else to fall into place. It’s all working better but does feel odd a bit lower!

      Feelin odd is good as it shows a difference. If it felt the same, it probably is so the results will be the same 🙂
