    Okay Manny, you successfully answered my twenty minute question. Here's one for you to chew on.

    Suppose you only had twenty seconds to spend with your trumpet. What would you do? :lol:

    Put the mouthpiece in the horn,
    Put the horn up to his face,
    Take a breath,
    HONK!!! Time's up.

    Truthfully?

    A high C for 8 seconds FF, breathe, then a high D for 10, FFF.

    Yeah, that'd do it. Then there'd be an opening in the MO for principal trumpet!

    Man, you can drink a whole beer in 20 seconds? I could probably do it if the beer was a very light lager with minimal carbonation, but make it a 13% ABV super thick imperial stout and that would take at least 30 seconds! :D

    I understand. So you're allowing for two seconds to warm down? :-?
