I'm really happy with the progress I've made using BE. In addition to my BE routine and other stuff I've added playing real book melodies up an octave. I have been able to play tunes up to the G above high C. I don't claim to own that note. It is thin and ugly, but it is there. During my BE routine I can play exercises above the G, some days up to double C. But again they are not really usable yet. But they are there. My endurance is also way up.

I am very anxious to have a gig. I haven't played a gig since March. I hope what I have worked on in practice will translate to the job. The proof is in the pudding where the rubber meets the road.

An interesting combination hat leads to some odd mental imagery

But nice to read you're having success. Keep up the good work and hope you'll get a gig soon!

------------------
reminds me of a local convenience store named 'Apple Foods' - they have a large neon sign that appears (to me anyway) to read
Apple Toads
uh, no thanks ....
