    I don't know, it's not something I concentrate on really.

    I don't breathe funny, but on occasion I will forget to swallow my spit, so I'll have a big mouthful at the end of a song.

    Classy, I know.

    Haha: apparently (I never realized until it was pointed out to me) I breathe in time and it can be heard when I'm doing something syncopated or with short pauses :). Doesn't bother me.:smug:
  6. Through my gills, like everyone else. :)
  7. I don't really concentrate on it, but once I did forget to breath when I was playing this really awesome sounding improv-thing. Other than that I usually end up breating at about 1/2 tempo. I breath in half notes lmao (assumed common time).

    i breath louder than suual when playing...cant help it, but wheneve ri practice unplugged i notice it at times....oh well.
  9. Yeah.. now that you mention it in so many words.. Breathing and vision both get affected while playing. I suppose it's my body coping with the increased stress on all systems.. Not such a bad thing it turns out, as the increased sense of "now" focuses the concentration into something much sharper than normal.
