Well, it’s killing me! (rimshot)

Two straight days of practicing, and I can already tell a small difference. I’m not putting in *that* much time (40 – 60 minutes or so per day), and by the end I can feel my chops giving out, but my sound was better yesterday than the day before.

Fair warning, family: I’m bringing the horn home and gonna try to practice during the holidays.

(The title, of course, refers to the old joke “Does your face hurt?”)
