A video of me playing my cornet very soft, sweet, and with very light pressure
In regards to that other post I made where I finally figured out how to rework my embouchure so I no longer "eat the mouthpiece", as the saying goes...
I have been practicing more and more with very light pressure, very mellow, and building up my range and endurance. It works! It really works!
In this quick video, I am trying to see if I can make my '75 Olds Ambassador "sing" like Shirley Jones did in "Carousel" to Gordon MacRae with the beautiful ballad "If I Loved You"... Hopefully I did it justice. I was trying to play as sweetly as possible with the lightest amount of pressure on the mouthpiece.
That brings back high school memories. It was a standard of high school bands back in the day.

Nicely done. Very relaxed sound, That was you frown embouchure, correct?
Yes, I was constantly using my new "frown" embouchure and very very light pressure.

Great job, Butch.
You sent me a really nice backing track for If I Loved You. I'm surprised you didn't use it here.
Take care , buddy.
Thank you! I appreciate it!
For everyone: Below is the "backing track" that I transposed into Bb so you can play along to it. I uploaded it into Soundcloud.
