Hello to everybody! I am a guitarist/composer (at leas I'm trying to be one ) and lately I'm busy composing my own music in Finale 2010. Music would be, I don't know right now in the very begining, but I guess it would be some kind of a fusion. Now, in my virtual " band" in Finale I have included a trumpet, since I am a big Miles Davis' fan. So, since I'm a guitar player, I don't know anything about trumpet notation, and particulary about articulation, technique, effects and how they should be presented in the notation system. For example, I don't know how to notate/produce that roaring sound, charracteristic to brass instruments. When I still didn't know the Finale program yet, by accident I made that VST emulation of trumpet to roar, but then I couldn't repeat that again. I tried everything from the articulation list, but with no success. So, here's what I'm asking you- I need some list for articulation markings, signs or whatever they're called, which are used for trumpet notation, especially in jazz, along with the short explanation of the meaning of each one of them. Thank you very much for your attention.
