What are some good breathing excercises to improve playing and to be able to play the notes longer and stuff? I only know of 2 things to do... 1. take a piece of paper, lay it against a wall with your hand, take your hand off the paper and blow on it as hard as you can to try and keep it from falling off the wall. 2. Take deep breaths and then blow as hard as you can. I've been doing these for awhile, they work great but I want to try new stuff to add to my 'breathing repetoire.' Any ideas put them here!
