Default Re: Playing while having a cold

Just the thought of playing pipes with bad sinuses makes me wince. I'm getting over a cold now and the last thing I want to do is have additional pressure in my head!

I remember back when I was learning, my instructor would take whatever powerful cold drug he could get his hands on to be able to play as promised at a paid gig. But it wasn't the most comfortable and pleasant thing to do!
