Hey guys, so I have kind of have a big performance coming up and was wondering about how to deal with this particular issue. My stagefright causes my mouth to get super dry, which causes my reed to get super dry. The whole dry mouth issue has never been a big problem because I've never played more than a few minutes "solo" before. But now I'm performing a 12-minute trio piece with no break and I'm running into issues with my reed drying out and not having any time to re-soak it. It makes it pretty nasty to play on. Any advice? Thanks so much!
