    That your throat is getting dry and hurts means you are doing it wrong. You need to back down and build a strong foundation and techniques at ranges that you comfortable with. You can push a little at the top end but not very much and it shouldn't hurt.

    Your throat is getting dry from too much air passing across the cords which in turn irritates the cords.

    Peace, Tony
