Just a thought on learning your horn, in a different way. Try playing a relatively simple tune, by ear, in every key. This will get you familiar (if you are'nt already) with your horn in a way that just reading the tune won't. When you develope the ability to play by ear, your ear tells your fingers etc. what to do, and the ideas in your head come to fruition much more easily.
