I've noticed lately that when I play for an extended time I will get some blood on the tip of my reed. I've gone to the mirror and looked at my lip and not seen a cut or any blood. It does seem that my tongue gets a little sore sometimes after playing a while. I wonder if I am doing something that I am not aware of with my tongue. I think I produce a pretty good tone. Is this a classic sign of taking in too much mouthpiece? I never had problems like this in the 20 years I've played off and on. The difference is I never played a metal piece until just the last year or so.
