As the title implies, how many of you are dealing with the effects of smoke in the air?
To exacerbate matters, we just had a record-breaking hot spell on top of it.
I've been noticing lately that my high end is touch and go sometimes, leaving me with only compressed air passing my mouth as opposed the note I was calling up. In other words, the smoke is irritating the heck out of my voice.
What all do you do to compensate for this?
I increase my water hydration for starters, and I also drink a bit of Aloe Vera juice before practicing to help soothe things down.
Interested in hearing your thoughts and experiences.
