I mentioned in my intro that I had laid down my harp due to illness, well that same illness came with some nasty nasty medications. I am alive, but they wrecked havoc…and I lost most of my teeth.
I pretty much have a new mouth, with implants and a fixed bridge. It all looks like my very own teeth, but they are different. The very shape of my mouth is different than it was before, as is the back of my throat.
Due to the changes, I am having some difficulty getting a good air seal, and am losing a whole lot of air, esp on draw notes.
I know that I need to practice,( re-learn is more like it), but has anyone else on here faced this sort of challenge? If so, do you have any suggestions?
Also, I have some sound files of my playing before my illness and would like to share them with you. How would I go about doing this? Right now they are in windows media player format.
As for right now, I am takin’ my poor ole sore lips to bed. They are tired!
