 Re: Seniors Only: Have you lost lung power?

Here's a thought for all you dinosaurs out there. Try playing on softer reeds. I'm 68 and can still get by quite nicely on a slightly lighter setup. I actually never used super-hard reeds, even in my prime, but nowadays, I tend to play on a less resistant setup and as a result, have no difficulty sustaining phrases. Has my lung capacity decreased? Perhaps. But adjusting the reed strength means I don't really perceive much of a difference.
