Five things to warm up.
5 things to warm up.
Just me, others have a different experience.
For me it is simple
Listening and hearing are not the same, listening allows me to hear what I am doing in fine detail and in the hearing I understand what I am failing in and what needs immediate attention.
The playing gets me warmed up and ready to play well the correcting of the errors I hear in my playing gets me ready to play to my highest level.
I want to eradicate the mistakes as soon as possible or I end up practicing errors and if I practice errors without immediately correcting them, then I consolidate bad habits and poor playing.
I want to consolidate good habits not bad habits.

For me, the first thing is the prepared body. Without a relaxed but straight posture, nothing else can be optimised. After that comes focus - removing distractions from the viewing field... and getting into the mood.
Then comes breathing/exhaling tones - my circle of breath. Once the juices are flowing all of the rest.
