Default Re: Cold weather playing

If the temperature gets down into the lower 30s F or below, things can go south on you pretty quickly. Simple physics. If warm, moist air comes into contact with cold, dry air it condenses. And it it's real cold, the resulting water can begin the process of freezing. Wreaks havoc. If you HAVE to play in freezing weather, say at a funeral or something, the best approach is to get your pipe put together, do a quick tune up, then get back in the car and keep YOURSELF warm until it's time. Play as little as possible until you have too. Excess moisture and frozen fingers will do you NO favors. I think the coldest air temperature I have ever played in was about 19 degrees F, and it was unpleasant at best. But I got through it okay.
